Annually, in accordance with Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 51 of the 1965 General Legislative Session, Commission submits to the Governor and the Legislature an analysis of faculty salaries in the University of California and the California State University for the forthcoming fiscal year.

The Commission's report for the 1990-91 fiscal year contains an analysis of the data submitted to the University and State University by their respective groups of comparison institutions and shows how those data are formulated into the party percentages included in the report.

This year, the estimated faculty salary parity amounts for the University and State University are 4.79 and 4.88 percent, respectively.

This year's report includes an analysis on pages 4 and 5 of salary increases granted for the past 12 years in California compared to increases in the national Consumer Price Index. It also presents a brief discussion on pages 9-13 of faculty compensation beyond the standard scale at the University of California and the implications of these high salaries for the University's ability to attract the finest scholars in the nation.

The Commission adopted this report at its meeting on March 5, 1990, on recommendation of its Policy Development Committee.

Later this summer, the Commission will publish a related report that will describe faculty members' salaries at California's Community Colleges and salaries of administrators at the University of California and the California State University.
