*Only includes base salaries; additional compensation earned through periodic pay appointments, such as extra quarter assignments and summer sessions, are not included. Since average salaries are derived from base salaries rather than actual salaries, salary reductions from employee furloughs are not reflected in the data provided.

Note: In the 2007 and prior editons of the Profile of CSU Employees, 12-month faculty salaries were adjusted using a conversion factor of 9/11 and then combined with academic-year salaries to provide average salaries by rank on an academic-year basis. Beginning in 2008, in an effort to provide more detailed information about salaries, the academic-year and 12-month salaries are reported separately and without any adjustments.
