We’re dead last: investigating a decade’s worth of faculty salary inequalities
BY VICTOR LOPEZ
In less than a month, the president's office will seek the
board of trustees' approval for a three-percent tuition hike.
Administration will also ask for a go-ahead on another
$250,000 in budget cuts, including staff and faculty position
cuts, should Guilford College reach an enrollment "worse-
case scenario." The cuts come on the heels of $2.5 million
to an over-$60-million budget over the past two fiscal years.
With help from 990 tax forms the College provides to
the IRS and data provided by The Chronicle of Higher
Education, The Guilfordian examines where professors'

Although faculty have received promotions, they have not
received raises commensurate with the added responsibility.
"The average salaries by rank have changed a little
because some faculty have been promoted to a higher rank,
while keeping the current salary at their lower rank, and also
because of retirements or departures," Grumbles said.
President and Professor of Political Science Kent Chabotar

raises beginning in 2014-15, even if enrollment only reaches
