WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (Exponent) - Although projects to standardize pay for academic advisers have been established, a huge wage gap is still present.
For the College of Engineering, salaries range from $30,812.15 for an academic adviser to $43,494.35 for a senior academic adviser. For the College of Liberal Arts advisers, the range is from $12,564.72 to $50,817.48 for the highest-paid adviser. However, Billi Jennings, director of first-year engineering advising, with a salary of $58,901.94, said that engineering advisers do not do anything different from the liberal arts advisers, although the program is more structured.
"It doesn't change how we advise the students," said Jennings. "We advise them on anything and everything that any other college at Purdue would advise their students on. For example, academic resources, projected plans of study, study abroad (opportunities), cooperative education programs and internships are all covered."
