Bowen, Howard R.
Salaries, wages, and fringe benefits of faculty, administrators, and general service workers who are employed in higher education are examined from a public interest point of view. The report is divided into three major parts. Chapter II presents an overview of the whole report including a summary of findings, conclusions, and recommendations. The history of faculty salaries and compensation over the period from 1903-4 to 1976-77 is reviewed in Chapter III. Chapter IV compares the salaries or compensation paid by colleges and universities with those paid in a wide range of occupations and industries. The appendices contain: notes on estimates of faculty salaries and compensation, 1903-4 to 1976-77; trends in salaries and compensation of workers in various occupations and industries, 1904 to 1975; and comparative salaries and compensation of workers in various occupations and industries, 1976-77.
