College Faculty Salaries See Slight Gains

April 15, 2019

Despite full-time college faculty members’ salaries increasing two percent this academic year, inflation tells another story. When factoring in inflation to data from the American Association of University Professors’ (“AAUP”) latest compensation report, faculty salaries nearly remained the same from last year. The AAUP’s findings also reflect the CUPA-HR’s recent report, which says median faculty salaries jumped approximately 1.7 percent this year without inflation factored in.
