Most NIC Faculty Earn $50K Or More

When North Idaho College instructor Molly Michaud was awarded tenure last spring, she excitedly told one of her friends about it. "He said, 'Molly, that is so awesome. What is your bonus?'" Michaud shared this anecdote with NIC trustees during last week's public workshop about tenure at the college, and the observers, many of them faculty members, chuckled when she did. "That's the thing. I just have the status of tenure. At this college, it's not tied to monetary gain," Michaud said. Tenure is a contractual right awarded to full-time faculty members after a four-year period of evaluations. It is not guaranteed job protection, but offers protection from being terminated without cause/Maureen Dolan, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: Is $50,000 per year a good base salary for NIC instructors?
