Salary Study of College Presidents and Faculty: Are Salaries for Institutions in the Council of Christian Colleges and Universities Different from Other Private Institutions?
This study examines the salaries of college presidents and faculty at private colleges and universities in the United States. This study identifies factors influencing the salary of college presidents and faculty and identifies differences between salaries at member institutions of the Council of Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU) and non-CCCU schools. Data was gathered from numerous sources (e.g. U.S. NEWS & WORLD REPORT, Marquis Who’s Who, the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System, and THE CHRONICLE OF HIGHER EDUCATION) in order to compare benchmark salary figures for college presidents and faculty while controlling for size, academic reputation and other institutional variables.
