Summary

Length of service and level of education attainment provided the bases for comparing faculty salaries in junior colleges which do not use academic ranks with those of 4- and 5-year institutions. Data were obtained from 57 usable responses to questionnaires sent to 150 junior colleges. Salary equivalents were determined by the formulas--(1) instructor's equivalent salary equals 25 percent of salary of holder of a doctor's degree plus 75 percent of salary of holder of a master's degree and (2) professor's equivalent salary equals 80 percent of holder of a doctor's degree plus 20 percent of salary of holder of a master's degree. The information was used to determine length of service differentials and educational attainment differentials in salaries. It was concluded that (1) it is possible to develop procedures by which junior colleges without rank can be compared with average salaries by rank in liberal arts colleges, (2) in the advanced career stage, liberal arts colleges have average salary levels about $1,600 or $1,700 higher than the equivalent average for the 57 public junior colleges, (3) average salary differentials between professors and instructors is greater in the liberal arts colleges than it is in junior colleges, (4) the hypothesis that junior colleges generally pay more than liberal arts colleges in the early stages of a teacher's career is not generally substantiated, and (5) junior college salary differences are relatively small between those holding the Ph.D. And those having only the master's degree. To ease increasing staffing problems, it is recommended that junior college salaries be increased at least as rapidly as those of liberal arts colleges. (hw)
