Howe, Richard D.
This report, covering 6,210 faculty in the field of philosophy and religion, 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 l995-96 baseline year and 1998-99 trend year 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 each of the 2 study years with trend information for all fields and with the Consumer Price Index. It notes that average philosophy/religion faculty salaries in public institutions in 1995-96 were 0.3 percent higher than those for all ranks in all major fields; at private institutions, they were about 6 percent lower than those in all major fields. In 1998-99, public institutions again ranked 0.3 percent higher than the average, while private institutions ranked 8.1 percent lower than the average salary. Appended is a list of the 53 selected academic disciplines, as well as lists of the participating public and private colleges. (CH)
