Average Academic Year Salaries of Instructional Faculty
2002-2003 Academic Year
Kennesaw State University (IIA)
National Public Comprehensive Masters (IIA)
KSU's average faculty salaries by rank continued to be virtually equivalent to the national averages for public comprehensive masters institutions (Category IIA) in the 2002-2003 year.
A review of this comparison in past years' issues of the KSU Fact Book will reveal that KSU's average faculty salaries by rank have consistently kept pace with the national averages in KSU's institutional category.
Even though KSU's average faculty salaries were very close to the national means, the national distribution of faculty salaries was skewed. Consequently, KSU's averages at each rank were typically between the 60th and 70th percentile of the national sample. In other words, only about one-third of the comprehensive masters institutions (Category IIA) had higher average salaries than KSU.
Increases in the average salaries by rank from year to year are not only affected by the size of annual salary increases received, but also by a variety of other factors including market conditions affecting new hires, the employment of distinguished/endowed chairs, promotions in rank, retirements, resignations, etc.
