Professionals in Higher Education Salary Survey

The Professionals in Higher Education Salary Survey collects salary data for “functional professional” positions with primary assignments and responsibilities requiring professional-level expertise and work in a specific functional area, such as academic or student services, facilities management, human resources, information technology, athletics, etc. Positions covered include those with supervisory duties that do not represent the majority of their time and effort. All positions require at least a baccalaureate degree or equivalent in the field and may require a terminal degree and/or professional licensure in the field. All survey positions are matched to BLS Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) codes to facilitate completion of IPEDS reporting requirements.
