In the wake of the faculty members strike at University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), we took a look at the salaries of tenured and non-tenured college instructors, according to data from the Chronicle of Higher Education.
In case you didn't hear about the two-day strike at UIC, here are the details: Faculty members hope the strike will lead to 4.5 percent salary increases (as opposed to the university's proposed 3.25 percent increase) and a raise in the minimum salary for full-time lecturers without tenure. Additionally, the union is seeking a raise in minimum salaries to $60,000 a year for tenured faculty members, and a raise to $45,000 (from the current $30,000) for nontenured faculty.
We ranked the top 10 schools in terms of average salaries for faculty members, not based on the minimum numbers mentioned above. That's why the UIC numbers will be higher than $60,000.
