Committee membership decided for salary equity investigation

Colorado State University assembled a committee responsible for reviewing faculty salary equity, in light of female faculty salary concerns.

The committee will devise strategies for detecting inequity on a regular basis, and advise on best practices for analyzing salary inequity concerns for individual members of the CSU community.

The committee is made up of University faculty, administration and external experts, including CSU Executive Director of Human Resources, members of the President’s Standing Committee on the Status of Women Faculty, as well as members of faculty and administration from other universities.

In May, President Tony Frank called for an investigation of gender salary equity. Frank said Provost Rick Miranda and Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs Dan Bush would complete an assessment of all full-time female professors, and receive input from them on whether or not they believe their salary is inequitable based on gender.

Women faculty subject to salary investigation are full-time professors below the regression line for their position and self-nominated faculty regardless of where their salary lies compared to other department colleagues.

Miranda said he hopes the strategies engineered by the committee can be used in future equity concerns.

“Although the initial focus will be on faculty salaries,” Miranda said. “I hope that the methodologies will be more broadly applicable as we consider salary equity issues for our other employees moving forward.”

Members of the Salary Equity Committee include: Diana Prieto, Executive Director of HR and EO, Chair of the Committee; Jerry Reiter, Statistics professor, Duke University; Marcia Gumpetz, assistant vice provost, Office of Institutional Equity and Diversity, North Carolina State University; Angelica Stacy, associate vice provost for the faculty, University of California Berkeley; Ellen Fisher, professor, Department of Chemistry, member of the President’s Standing Committee on the Status of Women Faculty; Tammy Donahue, professor, Department of Mechanical Engineering, member of the President’s Standing Committee on the Status of Women Faculty; Sue Doe, associate professor, Department of English; Colleen Webb, professor, Department of Biology; Mary Meyers, professor, Department of Statistics; Dan Bush, vice provost for faculty affairs; Laura Jensen, associate provost for IR, Planning and Effectiveness.
