Professional Staff

In 2007–08, the salaries of non-teaching staff—other professionals—increased between 3.5 and 4.0 percent, according to the College and University Professional Association for Human Resources 2007-08 Mid-Level Administrative and Professional Salary Survey. The “other professionals” category includes positions that require, at minimum, a bachelor’s degree, but do not include any managerial responsibility. Examples include jobs in information technology, student affairs, and human resources. While some of these professionals may be paid according to the faculty salary schedule, they do not teach. The range of increases this year is nearly identical to that in 2006–07; however, in the current year, all public institution types showed a 4.0 percent increase in the salaries of other professionals. The largest increase for private institutions was 3.8 percent for master’s institutions (Chart 8).

The median salaries for all job categories also increased by between 3.5 and 4.0 percent (Table 4). At public institutions, six of the eight classifications had increases of 4.0 percent, up from a total of five categories in 2006–07. The only job category to see an increase of 4.0 at private institutions was human resources professionals.
