Does it pay to be a professor - what kind of income do professors earn? Faculty and administrator salary and compensation data is of ongoing interest to our readers. With the goal of easier accessibility, we're putting university compensation data links in separate posts by school. If you'd like this information from a wide swath of schools, take a look at our post here. In South Dakota, you can search every school - from the University of South Dakota to Black Hills State to Northern State by faculty member name, school or for every person with the title "professor". It's not the easiest search engine, but it does work. And it's here.
