Regional faculty salaries remain much the same

Among the 15 Association of American Universities (AAU) public university branch campuses that focus on baccalaureate-level education, Pitt’s Bradford campus ranked 9th during 2002-2003 for average salary of full professors (Bradford average: $66,000) and 11th for both associate professors ($52,400) and assistant professors ($43,000).

Pitt’s Greensburg campus ranked 12th for average salary of full professors ($64,700) and 13th for both associate professors ($51,800) and assistant professors ($42,000).

The Johnstown campus ranked 13th for average salary of full professors ($63,200), 9th for associate professors ($53,400) and 10th for assistant professors ($43,200).

None of those three Pitt campuses has ranked higher than 9th or lower than 13th in any professorial category for at least the last three years. Several rankings were unchanged from last year.

Faculty salaries at the 12 non-Pitt, public AAU baccalaureate branches averaged $71,200 for full professors, $57,000 for associate professors and $48,000 for assistant professors.

Penn State branch campuses paid the highest average salaries for all three ranks: full ($77,200), associate ($64,600) and assistant ($52,800) professors.

Penn State’s average salaries also were highest among the three AAU public university campuses that confer at least 75 percent of their degrees below the bachelor’s level. Pitt’s Titusville campus for the sixth consecutive year ranked last among these campuses for both associate ($44,600) and assistant ($39,900) professors’ average salaries.

Titusville employs too few full professors (i.e., fewer than three) to be ranked in that category.

Salary rankings were published in the March/April issue of Academe, the journal of the American Association of University Professors.
