The American Association of University Professors (AAUP) has announced the release of No Refuge: The Annual Report on the Economic Status of the Profession, 2009-10. The AAUP website notes,
This year’s report discusses faculty salaries in the context of turbulent financial times and suggests that faculty salaries are concrete indicators of institutional priorities. Mandatory furloughs, hiring and salary freezes, and reductions in retirement-fund contributions are all symptoms of a continuing disinvestment in the faculty.
