The University of California and the California State University and Colleges submit to the Commission data on faculty salaries and the cost of fringe benefits for their respective segments and for a group of comparison institutions. On the basis of these data, estimates are derived of the percentage changes in salaries and the cost of fringe benefits required to attain parity with the comparison groups in the forthcoming fiscal year. Chapter I provides an introduction and a history of the salary reports. Chapter II contains segmented requests for faculty salaries and the cost of fringe benefits. Chapter III outlines faculty salaries and economic conditions. Chapter IV contains projected salaries at the University of California and the California State University and Colleges required for parity with the comparison group projections. Chapter V presents projected cost of fringe benefits. Chapter VI contains miscellaneous items--California Community College faculty salaries; University of California Medical faculty salaries; and federal wage and price guidelines. The final chapters offer several recommendations such as: the Governor and the legislature should give consideration to including a cost-of-living adjustment to the parity figures as discussed in Chapter V of this report and that the Chancellor's office of the California Community Colleges furnish salary data on both full- and part-time faculty to the Postsecondary Education Commission no later than February 1, 1981, and each year thereafter. Tables are provided for each chapter. (LC).
