Professional Salaries Up 2.2%

Gains are larger at public institutions.

March 30, 2015
 

Professional positions in higher education administration saw an overall median base salary increase of 2.2 percent in 2014, according to a report issued today by the College and University Professional Association of Human Resources.

The increase  a year ago was 2.1 percent. Reversing a trend of recent years, increases at public colleges and universities were greater than those at private institutions (2.3 percent vs. 2.1 percent).

Of the various positions covered by this report, the best compensated positions (excluding coaches) were (on average): staff physician ($148,722), followed by staff lawyer, veterinarian, pharmacist, senior technology licensing officer. The lowest paid position was that of student residence hall manager ($31,470 plus room and board).

A report by CUPA-HR last month covered salaries of senior administrators, who saw average gains of 2.4 percent.

The following table shows median salaries from the report being issued today.
