The American Association of University Professors (AAUP) released data collected from the last school year, 2013-2014, regarding the average faculty pay.
In the Feb. 18 issue of the Times-Delphic, the TD reported in “Are all professors created equal?” the results of the data from the 2012-2013 school year.
That data concluded that there was a 12 percent gender pay gap between male and female full professors, 11 percent between associate professors and four percent between assistant professors.
Between 2012-2013, the average full female professor made $99,550 compared to the average $113,000 salary for male professors. That is a roughly 12 percent gender pay gap.
Between 2013-2014, female salaries of full professors raised an average of $674 dollars for an average salary of $100,224.
The average salary of full male professors was $113,094, raising an average of $94.
Between 2012-2013, male associate professors made $78,600 compared to $70,100 for female associate professors. While the 2013-2014 female associate professors received an average raise of $289, totaling $70,389, male associate professors actually received an average pay decrease of $858, declining from #$78,600 to $77,742.
Assistant female professors received the largest pay raise during the 2013-2014 schoolyear. Their average salaries jumped from $63,500 to $68,166, which is an $4,666 increase. Assistant male professors only increased $2,823, from $66,000 from 2012-2013 to $68,823 from 2013-2014.
