Faculty Salaries in Alberta's Colleges & Institutes, 1993 to 2000.
This report outlines changes in salaries earned by full-time, permanent faculty members at Alberta's public colleges and technical institutes between September 1993 and September 2000. The Colleges Act and Technical Institutes Act create academic staff associations at each institution and mandate each institution's Board of Governors to negotiate a collective agreement with their association. For each credential, the average minimum, mean, and maximum salaries province-wide were calculated. The effect of inflation was controlled for by converting these averages into real-collars with a base year of 2000. Faculty holding doctoral degrees saw their real-dollar mean salary decline by 5%--from $58,364 in 1993 to $55,612 in 2000. Faculty holding a master's degree saw their real-dollar mean salary decline by 6%--from $53,623 in 1993 to $50,652 in 2000. Faculty holding a bachelor's degree saw their real-dollar mean salary decline by 4%--from $48,052 in 1993 to $46,107 in 2000. Faculty holding a single journeyman's certificate saw their real-dollar mean salary increase by 2% between 1997 and 2000 from $42,865 to $43,672. The sharpest decline in the average real-dollar mean salaries for college and institute instructors occurred immediately following a three-year 21% reduction in government funding that began in 1994.
