Faculty Compensation and the Crisis in Recruiting and Retaining Faculty of High Quality:  Faculty Compensation and the Crisis in Recruiting and Retaining Faculty of High Quality Excerpts from a report unanimously endorsed by the Academic Senate of the California State University May 6, 2005 A 20-Year Retrospective on CSU Faculty Compensation:  A 20-Year Retrospective on CSU Faculty Compensation Studies conducted by the California Postsecondary Education Commission (CPEC) have shown that compensation for faculty at California’s world-renowned postsecondary public universities has failed to keep pace with compensation at comparison institutions. A 20-Year Retrospective on CSU Faculty Compensation:  A 20-Year Retrospective on CSU Faculty Compensation Average CSU faculty salaries have declined in actual purchasing power since the late 1980s. Faculty Compensation and the Challenge of Hiring Faculty of High Quality :  Faculty Compensation and the Challenge of Hiring Faculty of High Quality Many CSU faculty members are approaching retirement. Declining numbers of tenured faculty present an enormous need to hire new faculty members. Faculty Compensation and the Challenge of Hiring Faculty of High Quality :  Faculty Compensation and the Challenge of Hiring Faculty of High Quality Current levels of compensation are a disincentive for hiring: “For 55% of respondents who rejected an offer from the CSU, the CSU offer was lower than other offers received.” Report of the Faculty Flow Committee. 2003 Slide9:  “compensation is only one factor that faculty use when considering job offers. Other factors such as pension plans, cost of housing, and quality of life often affect a faculty member’s decision when accepting a new position in California.” --California Postsecondary Education Commission Faculty Compensation and the Challenge of Hiring Faculty of High Quality:  Faculty Compensation and the Challenge of Hiring Faculty of High Quality A second major disincentive is the cost of living, especially in urban areas. Faculty Compensation and the Challenge of Hiring Faculty of High Quality:  Faculty Compensation and the Challenge of Hiring Faculty of High Quality Faculty Compensation and the Challenge of Retaining Faculty of High Quality :  Faculty Compensation and the Challenge of Retaining Faculty of High Quality Compression of the salary scale is a disincentive to retaining faculty members. Compression results from hiring new faculty members at higher salary levels, but not increasing salaries at higher ranks. Based on comparison institutions, CPEC data show: assistant professors’ salaries lag by 9.7% associate professors’ salaries lag by 7.1% full professors’ salaries lag by 21.4% Faculty Compensation and the Challenge of Retaining Faculty of High Quality:  Faculty Compensation and the Challenge of Retaining Faculty of High Quality The results of salary compression: Assistant professors hired a few years ago are resentful that those hired more recently are receiving higher salaries. Mid-career faculty members are more likely to seek jobs elsewhere. Senior faculty members are more likely to delay retiring in the hopes of securing a few more annual salary increases. Faculty Compensation and the Challenge of Retaining Faculty of High Quality:  Faculty Compensation and the Challenge of Retaining Faculty of High Quality Uncertainty about retirement programs is a disincentive to hiring and, especially, retention: The defined benefits of the PERS system have helped hold mid-career faculty members in the CSU when they compare the benefits available to them in many other institutions. The potential of the Faculty Early Retirement Program (FERP) has provided an offset to the tendency of senior faculty to delay retirement. The future of both programs have now been called into question. Adverse Effects on the CSU of Current Patterns of Faculty Compensation:  Adverse Effects on the CSU of Current Patterns of Faculty Compensation As hiring and retention has become more difficult, one result has been a smaller proportion -- and sometimes even smaller numbers -- of tenured and tenure-track faculty members. Adverse Effects of Current Patterns of Faculty Compensation:  Adverse Effects of Current Patterns of Faculty Compensation Senior faculty members see their salaries dwindle in relation to those of their peers. Junior faculty cannot afford to buy homes or to rear their children as they would be able to do in other states. Assistant and associate professors inevitably ask themselves if they can afford a future of such limited economic opportunity. These factors are producing a more mobile faculty, with lessened long-term loyalty to the institution. The resultant decline in quality will likely have a ripple effect throughout the state, one from which it may take decades to recover. Recommendations Regarding Faculty Compensation and Related Issues:  Recommendations Regarding Faculty Compensation and Related Issues The Academic Senate CSU calls upon the Chancellor and Board of Trustees to make faculty compensation one of the most important issues in budgeting, and to make clear in all annual budget proposals the strong and unwavering support of the Trustees for providing faculty compensation increases at the full parity figure recommended by CPEC. The Academic Senate CSU calls upon the Chancellor and Board of Trustees, and the California Faculty Association, to address the issue of salary compression, and the Chancellor to seek additional budget support as necessary to accomplish that objective as has Slide20:  Recommendations Regarding Faculty Compensation and Related Issues The Academic Senate CSU calls upon the Chancellor and the Board of Trustees to announce their strong support for the current faculty pension system and for the Faculty Early Retirement Program. The Academic Senate CSU calls upon the Chancellor and other CSU representatives to refrain from criticizing the CPEC methodology for determining the parity figure. Slide21:  The full report on Faculty Compensation and the Crisis in Recruiting and Retaining Faculty of High Quality is available from the Academic Senate CSU at its website, http://www.calstate.edu/AcadSen/ .
