The median base salaries of hourly, or nonexempt, staff members on
college campuses rose by 2 percent in 2014, according to the results of
an annual survey released on Monday by the College and University
Professional Association for Human Resources.
Electrician supervisors and police chiefs had the highest median
salaries among 145 job categories surveyed, and cashiers and food
servers and custodians had the lowest.
Increases were similar at most types of colleges. Associate-degree institutions had a slightly higher increase, of 2.3 percent.

professionals at 781 public and private colleges. A dash indicates
