Salary Breakdown for Professors at Penn State and Association of American Universities (AAU) Member Institutions

This week while revising my paper on the Women’s Caucus Enacting Change project I came across this report on the salary breakdowns at the Pennsylvania Sate University and Association of American Universities (AAU) Member Institutions.

The pdf report is available for download here.

Here is the Penn State report on faculty salaries for 2008-2009.

What troubled me most about the report was the discrepancy in salary for the Business college vs the college of Art and Architecture.  This highlights how little the arts are respected in society/higher education.


Association of American Universities-Main Campuses, 2007-2008 Salary Ratio

Agricultural Professor 110,292

Arts and Architecture Professor 93,468

Business Professor 180,284

Communications Professor 106,680

Earth and Mineral Sciences Professor 125 119

Education Professor 105,786

Engineering Professor 129,675

Health and Human Development Professor 121,650

Information Science & Technology Professor 132,514

Liberal Arts Professor 113,548

Science Professor 117,592

Here are two tables taken from the report that illustrate gender discrepancies in faculty ranking.

Table 13 describes The Pennsylvania State University salaries of full-time faculty at University Park, Fall 2008, at the College of Arts & Architecture.  Most strikingly at the highest ranking of Professor there are sixteen females to twenty four males.  The mean salary for female Professors is 92,355 compared to 93,492 for male Professors.  Female Professors have a mean 5.8 years in rank compared to 10.3 years in rank for male professors.  At the rank of Associate Professor there are 25 females to 34 males.  Females earn a mean salary of 70, 128 to 73,568 for males.  For the rank of Associate Professor both sexes have a mean ranking of 7.4 years.  At the ranking of Assistant Professor there are 14 females to 29 males.  Females earn a mean salary of 61,219 in comparison to 62,343 for males.  Only at the lowest rank do women have greater time in rank with 3.1 years at Assistant Professor compared to 2.5 years for males.
