Note: In prior editions of the Profile of CSU Employees, 12-month faculty salaries were adjusted using a 9/11 factor and then combined with academic year salaries to provide average salaries by rank on an academic year basis. This year, in an effort to provide more detailed information about salary data, the academic year and 12-month salaries are reported separately and without any adjustments.
