Faculty Salary Data:
Oklahoma State University Survey

 

Data Collected Fall 2002 

The Faculty Salary Survey by Rank and Discipline is a project instituted in 1974 by Oklahoma State University. Invitation to participate in the 2002-03 survey was extended to 105 institutions that belong to the National Association of State Universities and Land Grant Colleges (NASULGC) and also offer least five different Ph.D. programs. This year 94 institutions submitted data in time to be included in the survey, and MSU-Bozeman was one of the participants.

Institutions are requested to submit salary data by rank and discipline for each academic department. Departments are coded according to the Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) developed by the National Center for Education Statistics. In cases where MSU-Bozeman's departments represent combined disciplines, we report by discipline.

The Salary Review Committee at MSU-Bozeman uses salary data aggregated at the national level to make rough market comparisons by rank and discipline. The national average salaries by rank and discipline with the number of faculty in each reporting cohort are listed below. The salaries are an overall average of the 94 institutions where there were instructors of that rank and discipline. The "N" column lists the number of professors by rank that were included in the survey. Also, all salaries are on an 9-10 month contract. For year-round faculty, salaries where converted to what it would be for an academic year using a conversion of 9/11ths. (e.g. a department head that is paid 110,000 for the fiscal year is reported at 90,000 for the academic year). The complete survey report is available from the Office of Planning and Analysis. Please contact Ben Sharp with any questions at 994-7649 or bsharp@montana.edu.
