NEA: Average salary for FAMU full professors is lowest in State University System of Florida

The National Education Association (NEA) reports that the average salary for FAMU full professors is the lowest in the State University System of Florida.

According to NEA Today: “Faculty at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) also tend to be paid less than faculty at Predominantly White Institutions (PWIs.) For example, full professors at Florida A&M University (FAMU) earn an average $92,000 a year, making them the lowest paid among the 11 state universities. In fact, even though FAMU is a “Research 2: Doctoral Institution,” putting it in the second highest grouping in the Carnegie classification system, its faculty earn less, on average, than the highest paid community college faculty in the state.”

The average salary for full professors at Indian River State College is $98,500.

Florida Polytechnic University, which NEA included in the count of the 11 state universities in Florida, doesn’t have any full professors yet.
