Total Rewards Study

The University of Louisville is committed to creating thriving futures for students, our community and society. This is achieved by being a great place to learn, discover, connect and, perhaps most importantly, work — a place where each employee contributes their unique talents and expertise toward achieving the greater good. Our people are the lifeblood of our shared higher purpose, transforming our mission into reality.

UofL recognizes that a supportive and healthy work environment, including fair compensation, comprehensive benefits, professional development opportunities and work-life harmony, is critical to the long-term success and happiness of each employee.

To ensure UofL’s jobs and benefits are market-competitive and to provide clear job growth paths for its employees, the university committed itself to developing a stronger foundation for its compensation and benefits system and so embarked on a Total Rewards study. Total rewards include, but are not limited to monetary compensation, medical, life, dental and vision insurance, 403(b) retirement savings plans, tuition remission, wellness programs, and employee assistance programs. UofL’s Total Rewards study — previously referred to as the Compensation and Total Rewards study — consists of three projects to assess and restructure our comprehensive compensation and benefits program: staff compensation study, faculty compensation study, and a benefits study.
