Research

Overview

This collection represents a unified collection of data to provide an overview of the CCCU and its institutions. This data will continue to grow in scope and distinction with the yearly addition of data and reports from the Collaborative Assessment Project (CAP).  We will contribute to a stronger organization by better serving the data needs of our membership.

Academic Freedom and Christian Higher Education

Academic freedom is the right of the professor to a degree of freedom in teaching and research, subject to professional standards of competence, relevance, and respect. It is a foundational value of the academy. CCCU institutions share the academy’s deep commitment to academic freedom, and this document serves as a guide for CCCU administrators and professors regarding the common understanding and practices surrounding academic freedom.

Annual Research Surveys

The CCCU conducts annual comprehensive surveys of both faculty and administration salary and benefits to give governing member institutions benchmarks for their institutional strategic planning.

All CCCU governing member institutions are invited each September to participate. Both regional and national results are sent to presidents by the end of December. This service is provided free of charge for governing member campuses. Due to the confidential nature of this survey, results are only available to participating presidents. The most recent survey was completed for 2017-18. If you need a copy of this survey, please request this directly from your president.

If you have any questions regarding the forms or reports, please contact Nita Stemmler at nstemmler@cccu.org.

Collection begins September 30, 2018.  To prepare, download your Excel electronic survey form and definitions here:

This is the 33rd in an annual series of research reports conducted by the CCCU. The purpose of this study is to provide member colleges with comparative and longitudinal salary data.

The research has traditionally been based on information compiled for the AAUP, appearing in Academe each spring (for the current study, from March/April, 2017).  For those U.S.-based members not represented in AAUP, the author used data surveyed by the CCCU. Due to changes in CCCU membership categories, only governing members are included in this survey; however, we have added a new appendix based on Carnegie Classifications that allow us to include collaborative partners and affiliate members.
