A Study of Faculty Compensation and Salary Ranges by Academic Rank in Ohio Colleges Universities and Selected Junior and Community College Districts in the United States.
Kendra, Lawrence M.; Dalby, J. Philip
This summary of a study of salary and fringe benefits provides guidelines for considering teacher compensation in relation to academic rank, length of service, teaching load, and other conditions. Forty-two institutions, in three groups, supplied data: (1) all public and private colleges in Cuyahoga County, (2) all public colleges and universities in Ohio, and (3) a nationwide selection of multi-campus junior colleges. This is not a comprehensive salary study, but is directed to specific aspects of the meaning of "salary" and to the difference between salary schedules and salaries actually paid. It also points out that salary is only one form of compensation, others being retirement benefits, medical insurance, tuition waiver, and life insurance, all in varying amounts. A few other statistically negligible prerequisites were noted, such as sabbatical leave and low-rent housing. The data are shown in tables and can be applied to consideration of either a rank-based compensation schedule or a step-based schedule with superimposed rank. Most junior colleges seem to be developing the latter kind of schedule. (HH)
