Faculty Salaries in Washington Public Higher Education, 1975-77.
Washington State Council on Higher Education, Olympia.
Faculty salaries in Washington public higher education, 1975-77, are reviewed emphasizing salary levels, faculty purchasing power, and comparisons with other 4-year colleges and universities. Findings indicate: (1) The increase in inflation has eliminated any real salary increases for the average faculty member. In many cases, there have been substantial decreases in salary in terms of constant dollars. However, faculty productivity, when measured by credit hour loads, has increased. (2) The 4-year Washington institutions faced increasing competitive problems, since salaries now lag behind the weighted average of the seven comparison states by an average of 12.5%. As a result of these and other findings, the Council on Higher Education recommended that faculty salaries be raised by approximately 9% beginning January 1, 1975 for the 1975-76 academic year; and that a third increase to meet further cost of living increases be made effective July 1, 1976.
