CRA Taulbee Survey Announcement

The 2019 CRA Taulbee Survey will be starting soon. As has been our recent practice, the survey will be split into two parts, salary and main (everything else). This allows us to set an earlier deadline for the salary section in order to produce a preliminary salary report in December, while giving departments more time to collect and enter the information in the rest of the survey if needed.

In 2018 there was a major change to teaching faculty data collection. The group we previously called non-tenure-track teaching faculty was divided into two categories: those with more professor-like responsibilities, and those who are more instructor-like. This will continue this year in both the salary and main surveys.
