Salaries in Higher Education, 1965-66.
Graybeal, William S.
The competitive manpower market and enlarging demand for college faculty make it difficult for institutions of higher education to attract and hold competent teachers. Seventh in a series of biennial surveys, this study is directed toward identifying the status and trends of salaries and related practices among 4-year degree-granting institutions and junior colleges during the 1965-66 session. The information should be useful for budget planners, potential faculty members, and persons interested in comparing conditions in similar institutions. The survey is based on the response of 77.5% of 1,313 degree-granting institutions and 77.0% of the junior colleges invited to participate. Because of response rates, the data are estimated to be almost completely representative of conditions in publicly controlled institutions, fairly representative of large and medium size nonpublic institutions, and limited in representing small nonpublic institutions. About the same percentage of institutions in each geographical region responded. Growth in enrollments and staff has been greatest in the larger institutions. Information concerning the professorial rank of full-time teachers, salaries of instructional personnel, opportunities for summer employment, part-time faculty, salary increases, salaries paid to administrators, salary schedules and their provisions, and salaries paid in junior colleges are included.
