Fall 2006 American Association of Universities Data Exchange (AAUDE)
Annual Survey of Graduate Assistant Stipends

By-institution data (anonymous except CU) from responding institutions, fall...   2006 |  2005 |  2004
Data submitted from CU-Boulder, fall 2006 (Excel)

Each fall, AAUDE surveys its member universities concerning stipends paid to graduate student teaching and research assistants. Among the information requested for graduate assistants in each category are average cash salary, modal cash salary (i.e., the salary paid to the greatest number of graduate assistants), number of graduate assistants in terms of both full-time equivalents and headcounts, and the average net cost to the institution per graduate assistant (i.e., not only salary paid but also income forgone due to waivers of tuition and/or fees). Salary data are reported adjusted to 50%-time equivalents.

AAUDE compiles these reports from campuses and then issues a summary report late the following summer, showing the information reported by all member institutions that responded to the previous fallís survey, including CU-Boulder; this gives us an opportunity to see how CU-Boulder compares to other AAUDE member institutions.

Below are some basic summary data, based on 26 institutions that reported (22 public, including UCB, 4 private) in the fall 2006 survey.
