Centre college faculty salary analysis

Centre CollegeFaculty Salary Analysis:

A Review for the Board of Trustees

October 12, 2001


The statistical overview

The statistical overview:

  • Compare Composite Salary and Salary at Ranks

  • Compare Average Salary and Trends

  • Compare Entry-level Salary and Trends

  • Compare Salary at ranks adjusted for COLA

  • Use Three Main Comparison Groups:

    1. HEDS-AAUP

    2. “The Beloit Group”

    3. US NEWS Top Tier


Aaup percentile within ranks

AAUP Percentile – Within Ranks

  • Strategic Plan Goal: Raise salaries at each of the three ranks to the 80th percentile of all AAUP surveyed colleges

  • Currently, full professors’ average salary is at the 78.7th Percentile, Associates at 76.2th, and Assistants at 68.7th.

  • Time-line (trend) analysis shows the impact of the Grissom initiative (handout).


Compare composite salary heds

Compare Composite Salary (HEDS)

The Average Rank Composite weights salaries of faculty at different ranks (Full, Assoc., Asst.) according to proportions across all institutions in the comparison group.

The statistic answers: “What would be Centre’s average faculty salary if Centre’s distribution across ranks were the same as that of the whole comparison group?”


Compare composite salary cont

HEDS 2000/01 Data for 93 colleges

(Comparison Group is Basically US News 1st and 2nd Tier—Selected by Office of Institutional Research, 2000/01)

Average Rank Composite:

Centre $54,704

Group mean $61,062

St. dev. $8,885

Assuming a Bell-shaped Curve:

Centre is at the 24th percentile for these 93 schools (z = -.7164)

(The negative z-score indicates Centre’s Composite is below the mean by .71 standard deviations)

Salary Comparisons of US News Colleges

  • Observation: A college’s position in the US News rankings correlates strongly to size of average faculty salary:

    Comparisons get more favorable for Centre when comparing against colleges farther down in the US News ranking tiers.

Conclusions

Conclusions

  • Though salaries still lag behind other colleges, after a cost of living adjustment, Centre’s salaries compare favorably.

  • Entry-level salaries have fallen significantly behind salaries at other institutions. This problem is compounded by the difficulty of persuading recruited faculty that cost of living is potentially much cheaper in Danville than at other locations.


Suggestions

Suggestions

  • Use Office of Institutional Research data on COLA when planning faculty salary increases and compensation.

  • Base goals on comparisons adjusted for cost of living within meaningful subgroups of HEDS institutions, such as the Beloit Group or US NEWS top tier

  • Possible Goals:

    (1) Raise salary (adjusted for COLA) to 50th percentile of top 21 US News First Tier Institutions. (2) Raise salary (adjusted for COLA) to 70th percentile (z~.255) of Beloit Group schools.
