NASPA Salary Survey, 1997-1998: Senior Student Affairs Officer Report.
Barnet, Barb, Comp.
This report discusses the NASPA's Salary Survey for 1997-1998. A total of 1,131 surveys were sent out, and three follow-up reminders were sent by e-mail. The return rate was 37.9 %. This was a smaller return rate than for the past two surveys. The 1995-1996 survey had a response rate of 46.8%, and the 1993-1994 survey had a response rate of 55.2%. This report concentrates on the responses involving the Senior Student Affairs Officer (SSAO), the position at each of the institutions with responsibility for the total student affairs program. Results show that the average salary for those with a Ph.D./Ed.D. is $89,643. This figure is significantly higher than the average of $73,367 for those with an M.A./M.S. degree. None of the SSAOs claimed to have a Bachelor's degree as their highest degree earned. Several of those who selected the "Other" degree category wrote in the type of degree that they have. These include JD (Law), Ed.S., and Sacred Theology. Within the regions, the salaries are significantly higher for Ph.D./Ed.D than the M.A./M.S. degrees in regions III, IV East, IV West, and VI. However, no one region has a significantly larger Ph.D. salary than any other region, and no one region has a significantly larger M.A/M.S. salary than any other. Also, there are no significant differences among the region totals. (Contains 16 tables.) (Author/MKA)
