Faculty Compensation, 1975-1976.
Brown, Barbara; Romoser, Richard C.
In order to elicit data on faculty compensation, Cuyahoga Community College sent questionnaires to 34 community college districts representing 117 colleges. The sample represented all geographic regions of the country and all ages of institutions, but institutions selected were primarily urban colleges with large or medium-sized enrollments. Thirty institutions responded, an 81 percent response. Compensation data for 1973, 1974, and 1975 were available for 19 institutions. Average compensation increased by 8.9 percent in 1974 and by 8.2 percent in 1975. The unweighted averages were $16,649, $18,131, and $19,620 for the three years 1973, 1974, and 1975. The average difference between rank positions was $581 in 1973, $570 in 1974, and $529 in 1975. There proved to be a positive correlation between the age of an institution and the average compensation awarded to faculty in that institution. Also reported are: the relation of salary schedules to the Consumer Price Index, the length of the term of the last salary agreement, whether the faculty is unionized, and full-time instructional load policies. Data are organized into tables, and the survey instrument is appended. (NHM)
