Head, Ronald B.
In 1992, a study was conducted at Piedmont Virginia Community College (PVCC) to provide a comparative analysis of PVCC salaries and an examination of local cost-of-living data. PVCC salary data were compared internally, examining such factors as sex, rank, degree qualification, and seniority; and externally, looking at appropriate state, regional, and national salary data. Study findings included the following: (1) the average full-time teaching faculty salary at PVCC in 1990-91 was $34,089; (2) a strong correlation existed between salary received and rank, degree held, and years of service; (3) the average, minimum, and maximum salaries for women were lower than those for men, with men earning an average of $3,678 more than women; (4) faculty at PVCC earned on average of $1,308 (3.7%) less than faculty in the Virginia Community College System (VCCS), and $2,834 less than the national average; (5) the average administrative faculty salary in 1990-91 was $43,713; (6) a strong correlation existed between administrative faculty salary and administrative level, rank, and highest degree earned, while the correlation between salary and years of service at PVCC was weak; (7) PVCC's average administrative faculty salary was $4,386 (9.1%) lower than the VCCS administrative faculty salary average and $8,733 (16.7%) lower than the school with the highest average; (8) the average adjunct faculty salary at PVCC in fall 1990 was $384 per credit hour; (9) the average classified staff salary at PVCC in 1990-91 was $20,349; and (10) through analysis of housing costs, tax bills, and other cost-of-living indices, the Charlottesville/Albemarle County area was shown to be one of the more expensive in the state.
