Faculty Salaries at California's Public Universities, 2001-02. Higher Education Update.
California State Postsecondary Education Commission, Sacramento.
This document represents the final report on faculty salary compensation at California's public universities for the current (2000-2001) and budget (2001-2002) years. It also contains a brief description of the method used to calculate the parity percentages and the faculty salary increase trends over the past 20 years. The data are collected from the two public university groups in California, California State University (CSU) and the University of California (UC) in a method used for several years that involves a computational process that involves the weighting of several data elements by various factors, such as the number of faculty at each rank. During the first half of the 1980s, the salary lag between CSU and the universities with which it traditionally compares itself on financial matters (comparison group) was consistently smaller than the comparable lag for UC and its comparison group. By the later 1980s, this situation had reversed, and in the early 1990s few if any faculty salary increases were funded in California to create the largest compensation disparity since the 1970s and early 1980s. Tables present 1995-1996 and 2000-2001 comparison institution data by rank. These tables also allow the comparison of the UC and CSU systems as to faculty salary. (SLD)
