NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee is not raising college faculty salaries at the same rate most Southeastern states have over the past decade.

According to a report by the Southeast Regional Education Board, Tennessee's four-year colleges and universities have increased faculty salaries by 3 percent since 1998 when adjusted for inflation. The average increase for all Southeastern states has been 7 percent.

Average faculty pay in 2008 was $66,200 in Tennessee and $71,300 for the entire Southeast. That is below the national average of $73,500.

Faculty pay at Tennessee's two-year colleges has gone down 1 percent over the past decade when adjusted for inflation.

Average pay in 2008 was $47,600 in Tennessee and $50,200 for the entire Southeast. The national average was $58,800.
