Academe: Bulletin of the American Association of University Professors, v76 n2 Mar-Apr 1990
This report presents data on the economic status of university professors, including, among other statistics: weighted average salary, average compensations, and percentage increases in salary for continuing faculty, by category, affiliation, and academic rank; average fringe benefits in dollars and as a percentage of average salary; percentage of faculty members with tenure status; percentage increases in average salaries (monetary and real); salary levels of continuing faculty, full professors, and new assistant professors, by discipline; average age, average salary, and percentage of faculty by category, academic rank, and gender; percentage distribution of faculty members by age, academic rank, and gender; and number of full-time faculty and average salaries in preclinical departments of medical schools and in nursing. Highlights of the report are discussed in an article by Hirschel Kasper titled "Some Dynamic Aspects of Academic Careers: The Urgent Need to Match Aspirations with Compensation." These highlights note that real salary levels increased 1.1% from 1988-89 to 1989-90; only 4.6% of all full-time faculty are women and in the rank of full professor; and average salary levels for faculty at four-year colleges averaged $42,200 and $34,230 for those at two-year colleges.
