Women Best Represented Among Lowest-Paid Deans

April 24, 2019

Women are well represented among deans with the lowest salaries, but they make up less than one-third of the highest-paid deans, according to CUPA-HR's 2019 Administrators in Higher Education Report, out today. Representation of racial minorities among deans varies similarly. Sixty-five percent of all associate and assistant deans have faculty status. Women continue to make up about half of all administrators. The share of racial minority administrators rose to 16 percent this year, from 15 percent last year. Performance-based incentives became more widespread this year, while fewer institutions offered deferred compensation as an executive benefit, according to CUPA-HR’s survey. Some 1,174 higher education institutions provided incumbent-level data for 50,880 administrators in 200 positions this year.
