Administrative Salaries at Colleges and Universities in the West.
Viehland, Dennis; And Others
Information about salaries of higher education administrators in the West in 1978-79 is presented. The data came from an annual survey of administrative salaries conducted by the College and University Personnel Association. The 216 institutions from the West, which were part of the national data base, are described by state, type, and source of support. Among the findings are the following: although median salaries of administrators in the West are generally higher than salaries nationally, the differences are small; administrators in public institutions generally receive higher salaries than their counterparts in private institutions; salaries at private institutions in the West are generally lower than median salaries nationwide; median salaries at public institutions are higher at four-year than at two-year colleges and higher at universities than at four-year colleges; and salaries for most positions in the western states of California, Hawaii, Nevada, and Guam tend to be higher than in the northwestern states of Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming. Salary levels are reported at the median, first quartile, and third quartile. Salary data for the nation and descriptions of positions are included. (SW)
