Part-Time Faculty Salary Rates 1973-74 and 1975-76 for Selected Community Colleges.
Brown, Barbara; Romoser, Richard C.
During 1975-76 Cuyahoga Community College surveyed 37 institutions in different parts of the country to obtain information on faculty compensation. Thirty institutions responded, of which 19 submitted separate information on part-time faculty remuneration, the focus of this report. Part-time remuneration data for 1975-76 are compared to data for 1973-74, the last time such a survey was taken. In 1975-76, St. Louis ranked first in the field of 20, with $203 per quarter hour of instruction; Denver ranked last with $110. The average part-time rate per quarter hour of instruction in 1975-76 was $157. For the 13 institutions included in both the 1973-74 and 1975-76 studies, the 1973 average rate was $146, and the 1975 rate was $158, an 8.2 percent increase. Remuneration rates for part-time faculty are correlated to three possible influences: (1) average compensation for full-time faculty at a given institution; (2) whether faculty are unionized; (3) enrollment size of the institution. None of these factors, however, proved to be a significant influence on part-time faculty remuneration rates. Although data as provided by the institutions are appended, the document converts these data to a standardized unit of measurement (rate per quarter hour of instruction) and organizes them into table form.
