Faculty Salary Equity Study

The University of Louisville is committed to ensuring that faculty salaries are competitive in relation to market value and equitable with respect to gender and race or ethnicity.

The Executive Vice President & University Provost charged the Vice President for Human Resources & University EEO Officer with responsibility for developing a model to evaluate faculty salary equity by both gender and race or ethnicity.  A study group has been appointed for this purpose consisting of representatives of the Vice Provost for Faculty Personnel, Institutional Research, the Commission on the Status of Women, the Commission on Diversity & Racial Equality, the Faculty Senate.  The study group will coordinate with Academic Deans and University Counsel to ensure the resulting study model is consistent with Federal EEO guidelines and best practices among higher education.

In an effort to keep stakeholders updated on the study and to foster transparency, the group will post periodic updates below.
