Survey of Faculty Salaries and Fringe Benefits of Selected Institutions in Response to Senate Resolution 1976-209.
Curry, Denis; Johnson, Jackie.
The survey objective was to determine the 1976-77 salaries and fringe benefits for instructional faculty with nine or ten month contracts, both at the four-year colleges and community colleges in the Washington state system and at institutions of comparable size and scope in other states. Survey groups were established for: (1) research and doctoral-granting universities; (2) comprehensive colleges and universities; and (3) two-year colleges. The 1976-77 Higher Education General Information Survey report "Employees in Institutions of Higher Education" was used as a survey form, and as the basis for the survey's definitions of faculty. In the research and doctoral granting university category, both Washington universities were below average on a composite basis, and even farther below average in most cases on rank-by-rank basis. In the comprehensive college and university survey, Washington institutions were spread throughout the ranking, and on a faculty rank-by-rank basis were again lower than their composite average. Salaries at Washington community colleges averaged 8.1 percent lower than the survey composite. Fringe benefits as a percentage of salaries were lower than the composite average for Washington institutions in all categories. (MSE)
