Salary Equity

The University of California (UC) system has embarked on a broad effort to identify and correct inequities in compensation for women and URM faculty. Following the completion of a study by the UC system on faculty salary equity, then-UC president Mark Yudof charged individual UC campuses in 2012 to perform their own studies. In response, Vice Provost of Academic Affairs Brian Alldredge convened a committee to conduct a formal review of faculty salary equity in the schools of Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing, and Pharmacy.

For more information, review the Faculty Salary Equity Review fact sheet and talk to the listed school contact for further questions. We are always looking to improve our process and welcome any feedback you may have. Please contact Vice Provost Brian Alldredge with suggestions.

Committee Composition and Charge

The Faculty Salary Equity Review (FSER) committee includes representation from the Schools of Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing, and Pharmacy, three Academic Senate committees, office of Faculty and Academic Affairs, and the Vice Chancellor for Diversity and Outreach.

For the FY review, the Committee meets monthly from December- April and is expected to address potential salary imbalances by gender and underrepresented minority status. The committee:

  1. Reviews action plans submitted by the schools and provide the chancellor with recommendations based on these reports;
  2. If needed, considers changes to the methodology and/or data capture for the salary equity analysis with the goal of improving future analyses.
