This is the sixth in a series of yearly reports that supplement the Commission's annual reports on faculty salaries in California's two public universities. This year's report deals with faculty salaries at the California Community Colleges, and on executive compensation at the University of California, the California State University, and the California Community Colleges.

Following an executive summary, Part One of the report presents an overview of faculty salaries in the California Community Colleges and estimates the mean salary of full-time regular contract faculty at $49,268. It also discusses several policy implications of the community college data and the Commission's role in examining the use of part-time faculty by the colleges.

Part Two contains a special analysis of compensation for selected executives of the California State University and the University of California in light of compensation of similar executive positions at other comparable systems and institutions. This part also discusses State University and University of California policies regarding outside income and employment of these executives compared to the policies employed by comparative systems and institutions as well as the procedures used by the segments to establish and maintain executive compensation. Like previous supplemental reports, it also compares the salaries of selected campus-based administrators at the University and the State University with those at comparison-institution campuses and reviews the salaries paid to community college executives in California.

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

The Commission approved this report on recommendation of its Policy Development Committee at its meeting on September 16, 1991.
