Booklets

"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.
