Salaries in Higher Education, 1967-68.
Graybeal, William S.
Eighth in a series of biennial surveys, this study is directed toward identifying the status and trends of salaries and related practices among 4-year and 2-year institutions of higher education during 1967-68. The information should be useful for budget planners, potential university or college employees, and persons interested in comparing conditions in similar institutions. The survey is based on responses to questionnaires by 70.9% of 1,570 degree-granting institutions and 76.1% of the 853 2-year institutions invited to participate. An example of the rapid growth in number and size of institutions is indicated by the 21.5% increase over the 1965-66 survey estimate of total teaching faculty in degree-granting institutions. The data are estimated to be rather representative of conditions in public universities, fairly representative of public colleges and nonpublic universities, moderately representative of medium and large nonpublic 4 and 2 year colleges, and limited in representing small nonpublic colleges. The types of institutions from which information was received employ about three fourths of faculty in 4-year institutions and four fifths of faculty in 2-year institutions. Differences in regional distribution of types of institutions indicate the possible impact of regional differences in per capita personal income on salaries paid in specific types of institutions. Data concerning administrative practices and summer employment are included with the documentation of academic salary policies. (JS)
