Faculty Compensation Report Raises Questions

The Gavel
April 26th, 2015

Recently the American Association of University Professors released the results of their annual faculty compensation survey and report. The data comes from 1,136 participating institutions, including two- and four-year colleges and universities and 375,000 full-time faculty. The purpose of the survey is to assess the state of salary and benefits for faculty, as well as to combat myths about faculty salary and compensation.
Professor Susan Michalczyk, President of the Boston College chapter of the American Association of University Professors and second Vice President of the AAUP, says that faculty on the whole are underpaid in comparison to professions with comparable education. Additionally, there’s great disparity between what full, tenured professors make and what untenured or associate professors make.
