Data from the Maryland Higher Education Commission — the statewide board responsible for establishing policies for Maryland’s public and private colleges — reveals that full-time faculty for Maryland’s public universities have an annual salary of, on average, $105,140. Comparatively, the national average for full-time professors at public universities was $88,648. Full-time professors at private schools were paid $108,653 a year on average.
