Pursuant to supplemental Language to the 1979 and 1981 Budget Acts, the Commission annually prepares reports on faculty salaries at the California Community Colleges and administrators' salaries at the University of California and the California State University. In odd-numbered years, it also prepares reports on medical school faculty salaries at the University of California.

This 1990 report in this series contains the first two of those three elements:

  • Part One presents an overview of faculty salaries in the California Community Colleges and estimates the mean salary of full-time regular contract faculty at $44.286. It also discussed several policy implications of the community college data and the Commission's role in examining the use of part-time faculty in that segment.
  • Part Two shows the salaries of campus-based and central office administrators at the University of California and the California State University, with comparison institution data for the campus-based positions. It also discusses new Supplemental Budget Language to the 1990-91 Budget Act regarding an expanded review of executive salaries for the University and State University.

This report is designed to provide only descriptive data and as a consequence offers neither policy conclusions nor recommendations.

The Commission adopted the report at its meeting on September 17, 1990, on the recommendation of its Policy Development Committee.
