2007 Salary Survey
WHEN IT COMES TO COMPENSATING higher ed technology pros, how
are campuses measuring up vis-à-vis salaries, benefits, and job
security? How do those in tech-related positions perceive the fairness
of their compensation and benefits against peers in their region, age
group, gender, institutional tier, and more?
About Our Sample. In this exclusive survey, we
polled our readers across North American (largely US) campuses,
all in posts where they are either directly responsible for
technology purchase and implementation, or else drive or influence
the purchase and deployment of technology on campus.
One thousand and forty (1,040) members of our readership took
part in the survey and comprised our study sample from every
state in the union, with a small percentage (.5) of North American
respondents outside of the US. Thirty percent of those surveyed
represent private 4-year institutions; 36 percent hail from
4-year publics; 18 percent from 2-year publics; 8 percent from
2-year privates; 5 percent from vocational/technical schools; a
little over 1 percent from the for-profits; and 9 percent replied
with “other.” Respondents came from the largest publics (4
percent enroll 50,000 and over) to the smallest privates (4 percent
in the under 500-student category), and everything in
between. Most of those surveyed (58 percent) oversee from
1-19 staffers, 56 percent are male, 44 percent are female, and
while the preponderance of all respondents are 35-64 years
old, the largest percentage (almost 20 percent) are 50-54.
[Editor’s note: Due to rounding error, percentages in some
charts may add up to slightly more or less than 100 percent.]
