Salaries of Administrators in the North Carolina Community College System. Research Brief No. 1994-04.
Vanderheyden, Bob
In 1993, the College and University Personnel Association (CUPA) published the results of their "1992-93 Administrative Compensation Survey," which contains salary figures for 136 administrative positions. A match of CUPA titles with those used by the North Carolina Community College System (NCCCS) revealed that 26 of the positions on the CUPA list can be found at institutions within the NCCCS. None of the NCCCS positions reported have more than 40% of salaries that fall above the 60th percentile of the national sample, leading to the conclusion that none of the NCCCS positions are overcompensated. On the other hand, only two positions do not meet criteria for undercompensation: Chief Executive Officer (President) and Chief Business Officer. Additionally, 16 out of 26 positions have more than 75% of the salaries falling below the 40th percentile. The efforts of the North Carolina State Board of Community Colleges in raising presidents' salaries to be on par with the nation are validated by these results, but salaries for other administrative positions are significantly below the national average.
