Each year, in accordance with Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 51 of the 1965 General Legislature Session, the Commission submits to the Governor and the Legislature an analysis of faculty salaries at the California State University and the University of California for the forthcoming fiscal year. This report for the 1994-95 fiscal year contains an analysis of information on faculty salaries submitted to the State University and the University by their respective groups of comparison institutions and shows how this information is used to calculate the "parity percentages" included in the report. (A parity percentage is the amount of increase in salary necessary for each system to maintain a competitive position in relation to the mean of its respective comparison group of institutions.)

This year, the estimated faculty salary parity amount for the California State University if 6.8 percent. That figure takes into account the recently negotiated faculty salary increase that is effective April 1, 1994. Without that salary increase, the State University's parity figure would have been 11.5 percent.

This year's parity figure for the University of California is 12.6 percent, assuming full restoration in 1994-95 of the 3.5 percent salary reduction imposed upon the University's faculty for 1993-94. Had that restoration not been assumed, the University's faculty salaries for next year would lag even further behind the average of its comparison institutions than the otherwise will.

The Commission adopted this report on April 18, 1994, on recommendation of its Fiscal Policy and Analysis Committee.
