In the comments:

  • Salary compression is getting worse and worse.
  • Teaching professors have significantly lower salaries by about $20K than the national average.
  • Important to get tuition scholarships for spouses and dependents.
  • We need more tenure lines, and with a special focus of hiring African-American, Latinx, and Indigenous tenured / tenure-track faculty.
