The ADEA Educational, Research, and Analysis (ADEA ERA)
portfolio is excited to announce the relaunch of the ADEA Allied Program
Directors’ Survey this October. At the ADEA Allied Program Directors’ Meeting
in Philadelphia on June 7–10, ERA staff convened a focus group to discuss the
questions on the new survey with the allied community. The survey contains
three primary topics: descriptors about each allied program and its program
leadership, total number of faculty positions by discipline and salary
ADEA is listening to its members and wants to create both a
survey that respondents are comfortable answering and data that can be used
within their institutions. Salary information in the new survey will be in
aggregate form, and thus more readily accessible to ADEA members. Thanks to
focus group feedback, ADEA will add more information about the number of
tenured positions, incentives offered for continuing at the institution,
lost/vacant positions and expected number of retirements within the next five years.
With more than 600 allied program directors in the United
States, ADEA is hoping to gather useful information about those directors and
their staffs, basic demographics, types of degrees held, total number of faculty
positions and general information about compensation at each level.
We request that all allied program directors take the time
in October to participate in the survey. Results for the survey will be
published on the ADEA website at Surveys and Reports.
