Faculty Compensation Survey

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 July.

See the 2020-21 report.

NEW: Explore survey results for 2019–20 and 2020–21 using the interactive AAUP Faculty Compensation Survey Results Tool.

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 at no cost. Order data or find out more here
