A spokesman for the University of Minnesota — which took issue with its ranking in the Institute for Policy Studies’s report on administrative pay — pointed out this announcement this morning:
IPS Statement on low-wage faculty findings:
Due to questions about information we gathered from the American Federation of Teachers Higher Ed Data Center website, we are working with AFT to correct any inaccuracies in their data. The Institute for Policy Studies will issue a revised report once all AFT data has been corrected. The report’s findings on executive compensation and student debt are not affected.
Curious to see what will change.
