Annual faculty salary increase report released

Pitt's Office of Institutional Research has released its annual Faculty Salary Increase Report. And, as usual, the numbers require a little explanation.

For example, faculty were excluded from the "continuing faculty" category if they were promoted last year, were on leave of absence, or changed from eight-month to 12-month contracts or vice versa, among other reasons. See note below the chart for a full list of faculty categories excluded from the report.

A school that appears to have awarded lower-than-average pay raises may in fact have promoted a number of professors and raised their salaries. But because those faculty members changed rank, they did not show up as continuing faculty in the report. But by looking at the numbers for "total faculty" as well as "continuing faculty," readers can get an idea of how faculty salaries changed between Oct. 31, 1996, and Oct. 31, 1997.

Institutional Research is distributing its report to deans, regional campus presidents and members of the University Senate budget policies committee.
