View Comments ()




    A new report says the University of Virginia pays the highest average full-time faculty salaries in the state.

    The American Association of University Professors released its annual faculty salary report Monday.

    According to the report, U.Va.'s full-time faculty earns an average $109,400.

    Washington & Lee's faculty salary came in second among state schools. The average salary there is $101,800.

    At the University of Richmond, it's $99,100, while full-time faculty members at Virginia Tech earn an average of $89,400.

    Nationwide, the report says part-time faculty appointments have outpaced full-time tenured or tenure-track positions.

    Co-author and Hampden-Sydney College professor Saranna Thornton tells the Richmond Times-Dispatch that tenure-track positions are largely in fields where there's high demand from the private sector. text
