Recommendations for Faculty Salaries in Washington Public Higher Education 1977-79. Report No. 77-17.
Washington State Council for Postsecondary Education, Olympia.
The Washington State Council for Postsecondary Education reviews current faculty salaries within the context of the Council's policy recommendations in the 1975-77 biennium and in terms of comparisons with various measures of competition. Recommendations are made to the state legislature to provide funds to increase faculty and other exempt salaries from 5.4 to 13.9 percent in the 1977-78 academic year, with additional increases provided for the 1978-79 academic year based on anticipated increases in the cost of living. The legislature is also advised to review the variation in average salary levels between the two universities and among the four state colleges, and consider steps to reduce or eliminate differences if they cannot be supported by faculty composition and/or other relevant factors. The recommendations are supported by information regarding the cost of living; salary adjustment criteria; faculty purchasing power; and the question of competitiveness using a variety of comparisons.
