Note: In the 2007 and prior editions 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.
