Salary-Trend Study of Faculty in Parks, Recreation and Leisure Studies for the Years 1995-96 and 1998-99.
Howe, Richard D.
This report, covering 4,562 parks, recreation, and leisure faculty, is part of an annual national survey of faculty salaries. The survey consists of two parts: one covering public and one covering private four-year colleges and universities. Data for the baseline year 1995-96 and the trend year 1998-99 were collected for full-time teaching faculty in 53 selected academic disciplines from 279 public and 386 private institutions. The first section of the report defines the methodology and terms used; this is followed by a data page listing average salaries for both public and private participating institutions by faculty rank (including a new assistant professor rank), faculty mix percent, and salary factors. A concluding section compares salary trend information for both public and private institutions for the 2 study years with trend information for all fields and with the Consumer Price Index. It notes that for both public and private institutions average parks, recreation, and leisure studies faculty salaries in 1995-96 were, respectively, 12.5 percent and 25.9 percent lower than those for all ranks in all major fields; in 1998-99, salaries in public and private institutions were, respectively, 13.4 percent and 26.8 percent lower than average salaries in all major fields. Appended is a list of the 53 selected academic disciplines, as well as lists of the participating public and private colleges. (CH)
