Financial Inequality in Higher Education: The Annual Report on the Economic Status of the Profession, 2006-07
Thornton, Saranna
American Association of University Professors
Financial inequality is growing in U.S. higher education. In this report, the author observes increasing differences between the endowments of rich and poor institutions, between the salaries of college and university presidents and their faculties, between the salaries of athletic coaches and professors, and between well and poorly compensated faculty members. This economic inequality has the potential to negatively affect higher education. This report addresses this potential in the context of this year's survey findings. (Contains 5 tables, 5 figures, and 13 endnotes.)
