The AAUP's research program promotes the economic security of the profession through advanced research and systematic solutions for higher education.

Faculty Compensation Survey

The AAUP conducts an annual survey of full- and part-time faculty compensation. The results are published each spring for the current academic year. 

Active AAUP chapter leaders may request custom reports which will be addressed on a case-by-case basis. For a complete list of the data products available to institutions and AAUP chapters, please see the order form page.

The Academic Workforce and Gender Equity

The AAUP Research Department also conducts research on other topics affecting higher education. Most recently, we have conducted research on academic freedom, gender equity, and part-time faculty.  You can access research reports here
