Instructional Academic Staff Resources

We have compiled the resources below to help instructional academic staff learn about their employee rights. The UW System's Title and Total Compensation (TTC) Project has exposed long-standing inequities facing lecturers, visiting professors, and other adjunct instructors.

Together, we can become informed advocates for better pay, job security, promotion opportunities, and working conditions. We are committed to using  shared governance and collective action to create the best educational environment for students and employees.

How underpaid are we?

The Chronicle of HIgher Education has published its lastest salary data for faculty and academic staff at colleges and universities across the country, and the picture is not pretty. UW-Eau Claire salaries for all faculty and staff lag behind those of most of our peer institutions in the upper Midwest, and they rank "below" or "far below" the median of all Master's-level universities in the country.
