Faculty Salary Equity

The Faculty Senate and UCF recognizes that to “attract and cultivate exceptional and diverse faculty” is one of our promises in the Collective Impact strategic plan. Understanding more deeply how a variety of variables, including job title, date hired and discipline, influence salaries will help us fulfill that promise.

IKM was tasked with conducting salary research of UCF faculty during the early spring of 2017 to get a better understanding of possible pay gaps and equality issues. The research was conducted based on previous salary equity studies conducted at UC Berkeley, UC Riverside, and others.  Initial findings were presented to the Faculty Senate in March of 2017.

During the Summer of 2017, the Faculty Senate, Faculty Excellence, and IKM convened a working group and collaborated with university leaders on determining the best way to move forward.  After additional work, the final study findings were presented again to Faculty Senate in November of 2017.
