Abstract

This paper ranks 500 universities and colleges based on compensation paid to their faculty. The analysis examines universities both on a raw basis and cost of living adjusted basis. This work extends the previous literature by examining a broader group of schools. This research includes private universities and community colleges. Most previous literature is limited to the examination of public universities. Similar to previous papers, the results here show that cost of living adjusted salaries differ dramatically from raw salary figures. The results suggest that administrators should design compensation packages that reflect cost of living realities in their area. Faculty seeking employment opportunities should carefully consider cost of living issues.

Keywords: Faculty Salaries, University Administration, University Rankings
