Salaries, Tenure, and Fringe Benefits of Full-Time Instructional Faculty in Institutions of Higher Education 1975-76.
Beazley, Richard M.
The data presented were collected in the survey of Salaries, Tenure, and Fringe Benefits of Full-Time Instructional Faculty that was included in the Higher Education General Information Survey (HEGIS X) conducted in the fall of 1975. Responses were received from 2,953 of the 3,055 institutions and branches of higher education cited in the 1975-76 Education Directory, a 96.7 percent response rate. The responding institutions and branches enrolled 98.2 percent of college students. The data show that: (1) the number of full-time instructional faculty increased by 2.1 percent from 1974-75 to 1975-76, with the percentage of women increasing by only .5 percent; (2) the number of tenured instructional faculty increased by 5.1 percent during the year, with a greater increase for women with tenure (6.2) than that for men (4.9); (3) salaries of full-time instructional faculty on 9- to 10-month contracts increased 6.6 percent, and on 11- to 12-month contracts, 5.2 percent; (4) fringe-benefit expenditures increased 34.5 percent since 1972 and were higher in publicly controlled institutions at each rank except professor; and (5) on the average, increases in faculty compensation were approximately 7.5 percentage points less than the increase in the cost of living from 1973 to 1976.
