"Faculty Salaries" is Inside Higher Ed's latest print-on-demand compilation of articles.
It contains a report on the annual faculty compensation survey from the American Association of University Professors and explores such topics as gender and racial pay gaps and adjunct unionization.
This compilation is free and you may download a copy here.
And you may sign up here for a free webinar on Thursday, August 20, at 2 p.m. Eastern about the themes of the booklet.
The publication of this booklet was made possible in part by the advertising support of Academic Partnerships.
Tenure-track jobs are harder than ever to find, with the economic mess prompting many colleges to grow even more cautious about hiring anyone on the tenure track. Tenure-track openings are being put on hold. Searches are being called off every day. Many who worry that higher education has created a faculty of two tiers -- the privileged tenured class and the overused and abused adjuncts -- have been told that this year is simply not the year in which to promote change.
The recent reports on academic labor by the American Federation of Teachers and Modern Language Association are great news. The great news is not the information the reports present. They offer little that is new or heartening. Instead, they echo what most adjuncts and many academic labor activists already know: Exploitation of contingent academic laborers is growing in scale.
