AAUP Faculty Compensation Survey

2018-19 AAUP Faculty Compensation Survey

The annual AAUP Faculty Compensation Survey is the largest independent source of data on full-time faculty salary and benefits at two- and four-year colleges and universities in the United States. The 2019 iteration of the survey includes information on salary and benefits for more than 380,000 full-time faculty members, and also salaries for senior administrators and pay for part-time faculty members, from more than 950 institutions in all 50 states and Puerto Rico. The survey, along with the accompanying "Annual Report on the Economic Status of the Profession," is published each year in April. Inside Higher Ed below presents these data in an easily searchable database.
