DATABYTES: AT THE HEAD OF THE CLASS TOTAL NUMBER OF TENURED/TENURE-TRACK FACULTY CHANGE IN MEDIAN SALARIES FROM 2007 TO 2008* SHARE OF FACULTY MEMBERS WHO ARE WOMEN SCHOOLS WITH THE MOST TENURED/TENURE-TRACK ENGINEERING FACULTY**

Fifty percent of all tenured and tenure-track engineering faculty members are full professors.

That’s down slightly from the 52 percent reported in 2001. Yet the proportion of women at this highest level has increased from 4.4 percent to 6.9 percent during the same period. Median salaries for full professors saw the largest increase of the three faculty levels over last year, increasing by 4.7 percent. Other faculty data trends can be viewed at www.asee.org/colleges.
