How To Find Out What Professors Actually Make

college professorAre you curious about how much a university professor makes? Wondering what they made a few years ago and if salaries have gone up or down at your alma mater? The Chronicle of Higher Education has a new tool out that answers just that question.

Being a Harvard guy, it was not surprising to see that a full professor’s salaries is, well, quite high. Nearly $200,000. Good work if you can get it.

But what did surprise me about Harvard salaries is how much instructors make: just about $60,000. While that’s still relatively high, it just seemed surprising.

Do a search for your college or university of choice. You may be surprised to find out how much your favorite faculty and friends are making. Click here to check out the tool.
