McNay Addresses Senate Higher Ed Subcommittee; Contact Your State Senator

May 22nd, 2015

On Wednesday, May 20, OCAAUP President John McNay delivered testimony to the Senate Finance Higher Education Subcommittee.

McNay expressed that faculty have grown weary of being scapegoated for driving up costs at Ohio's public colleges and universities. 

He told legislators that less than 24 percent of institutional operating budgets is spent on professors' salary and benefits, also known as "instructional compensation," and that instructional compensation actually has declined by over 4 percent over the last 10 years when adjusted for inflation.

"As college costs have continued to rise, faculty compensation has dipped below inflationary levels. Clearly, other factors need to be examined," he stated.
