HANOVER, N.H. (AP) - The Dartmouth College board of trustees wants to bring faculty compensation in line with that of peer schools though it hasn’t set a deadline for doing so.

The Valley News reports (https://bit.ly/2f5Lse9) that trustees last month directed administrators to find “benchmarks” but did not suggest how much compensation should shift. Faculty members have been lobbying for better pay in recent years, arguing that attracting and retaining the best scholars boosts student education and the college’s academic standing.

Data compiled by the American Association of University Professors shows that the average tenure-track faculty member at Dartmouth made about $177,000 in 2015, roughly $15,000 less than the average Ivy League counterpart. The average full professor at Dartmouth made $233,500 last year, nearly $45,000 less than the average full professor at Harvard.
