Compensation and Total Rewards Study

UofL is conducting a Compensation and Total Rewards Study in partnership with Segal, an HR consulting firm with expertise in higher education to provide fair and equitable faculty (nonclinical) and staff compensation programs as identified in the 2019 – 2022 Strategic plan. The university will use the results of this study to:

  • Provide opportunities for career development and advancement
  • Provide a comprehensive and competitive compensation and benefits package
  • Follow “best practice” philosophy and align the university’s job and pay structure with the market (NOTE: There will be no pay decreases in pay as a result of this study)
