CUPA-HR Faculty Salary Reports

The ECU College and University Professional Association for Human Resources (CUPA-HR) Faculty Salary Survey Reports compile aggregated CUPA-HR data and compare ECU faculty salaries to those at other Doctoral Universities (2015 Carnegie Classification). Because salary data are collected and reported separately for tenured/tenure track faculty and non-tenure track faculty, a separate report (PDF) is provided for each.

Delaware Study of Instructional Costs and Productivity

The Delaware study (PDF) is a national study of instructional costs and productivity generally acknowledged as the “tool of choice” for comparative analysis of faculty teaching loads, direct instructional cost, and separately budgeted scholarly activity, by academic discipline. A guide to understanding the Delaware study is available here.
