Update: UO salaries *fall*. Raises to get to AAU peers shown.

7/22/2013 update: Some fodder for the UO Trustees counter-proposal on raises to be presented Tuesday. IR should have new salary data from the AAU data exchange soon, but the sharing agreement says it can’t be posted on the web. 

4/8/2013 update: The AAUP released its latest salary report, showing average faculty salaries at public universities increased 1.3% over last year.

Here at UO salaries for full and instructors increased about that much, but pay for associates and assistant professors actually decreased, according to the data reported by UO to the AAUP. Page down to see how far behind our AAU comparators you are, by department and rank.

2011-12:




2012-13:


3/17/2013. The administration has proposed 5.05% average raises for the faculty through the 2013-14 AY.

This table comes from the data on the UO IR website and shows what percentage raises would be needed, by department and rank, just to get faculty to where the AAU comparators were back in 2010. Add another 5% or so to account for increases at the comparators since 2010, and as the comments note you might want to knock off a bit for fulls hired before 1996, on account of their PERS tier 1 deal, if you think they can keep it.

I’ve put the departments that are at or above median in the NRC rankings in bold. I apologize for the lack of data on instructors, I don’t have a good source.

    Personally, I get payed for my teaching/research in peanuts and bananas. Soooo depressing. Remind me again why we are NOT striking over this?

  2. Anonymous says:

    What’s this about retiring faculty getting an “automatic raise” when they file to retire in three years, thus padding their salary and pushing up their PERS payments? Of course, they are not “guaranteed” that “raise” when they work post-retirement part time, poor things.

    Of course, the shoveling of $ on retiring faculty is not as extreme as the shoveling $ on retiring high level administrators.

    Of course, the shoveling of $ on retiring classified staff and low level officers of administrator is nonexistent.

    Pfft.

  3. COALEMOS says:

    UO website (http://admissions.uoregon.edu/profile.html) says 20:1 but it’s a meaningless number either way. It’s a “teacher” to student ratio which I believe means they count everybody (adjunct, GTF, NTTF, TTF). It sounds good to prospective students because that is the phrase they use in high schools but it ignores the rising reliance on part-time adjuncts to teach classes, which wouldn’t necessarily affect the ratio.

  4. faculty skeptic says:

    Why does the AAUP report UO has a 23-1 student-faculty ratio, when US News says it’s 20-1?

  5. downhillfast says:

    Our administrators: Is anyone looking out for our administrators? Their increases: Are they enough to keep up?

    Sure I’m paid 25% less than my peers. But don’t forget the luxurious office in PLC, and our exclusive faculty club.

    • Three-Toed Sloth says:

      I would need a 50% increase to reach the AAU average in my rank/discipline. But my office is nice.

  7. Anonymous says:

    If it really mattered, we’d be seeing a mass exodus from the University. As it stands the ratio of graduates to open faculty positions is so great that UO doesn’t need to pay their faculty well. If faculty left, where would they go? Who cares about the quality of the research and instruction? Certainly no the administration or the state. Students aren’t coming here for that anyway. Internationally we have a reputation as the place to send your stupid kids to because we gave up on standards in favor of out-of-state and international tuition dollars.

    • Anonymous says:

      Out out-of-state students are better on entry and outperform our residents while here.

      “If it really mattered”

      It’s amazing how short-sighted your statement is. Continuing on with salaries that can’t compete is a perfect way to reduce our ability to stay in the AAU and maintain the various clusters of excellence that have been built on this campus. Your logic simply presumes that because there are unemployed PhDs out there, that we can maintain a “faculty on the cheap” strategy. But you are seemingly unconcerned about the loss of truly excellent faculty, and the failure to recruit excellent new faculty. You’re a bean counter of the worst kind.

      Excellent faculty have a lot of choices, and they do not have to stay at institutions that embrace your path to mediocrity.

      I’m not speaking to how things ought to be, I’m addressing how they are.

      If UO admins and the state don’t care about quality, which I posit they do not, then by all means the good faculty should go somewhere that their work is appreciated. That they aren’t leaving in droves implicitly gives the administration a pass on their bad behavior.

      We’re quickly becoming a community college with a multi-million-dollar athletics marketing program. Sadly, it’s what the administration and the state wants. Go ducks, as the kids like to say.

      I don’t know about “leaving in droves” but Espy has certainly driven away some good ones, and screwed up at least 2 searches for replacements.

    Ed is doing OK.

    This is of course to get 2010 levels. Now three years beyond that and with states unfreezing salaries, and one would probably need to add 5 to 7 percent to all academic ranks to adjust for COLA adjustments our comparators are receiving.
