Faculty Compensation Survey

Preliminary results of the AAUP's annual Faculty Compensation Survey are published in April for the current academic year with a full Annual Report on the Economic Status of the Profession published in the summer.

See this year's preliminary data.

Explore survey results since 2016–17 using our new AAUP data website.

Data from the survey are also available in several custom formats: research portal access, complete datasets, peer compensation reports, and survey report tables. Access to data through the AAUP research portal access is available for institutions to create and save peer lists and conduct fully customizable analysis on specific variables not included in peer compensation reports. Complete datasets are provided in Excel and include all of the report appendix institutional listings plus additional fields. Reports and data will be provided to active AAUP chapters and state conferences in good standing, as well as to AFT local presidents, at no cost. Order data or find out more here
