FY 89 Faculty Salary Review.
Ott, Mary Diederich
The University of Maryland at College Park is committed to ensuring that faculty salaries are based solely upon the contributions and accomplishments of the individual faculty members. The relationship between male and female faculty salaries is carefully monitored. The 1989 female faculty salary reviews (done in relation to the salaries of comparably situated men) examined the current salary of tenure-track female faculty members and recommended individual adjustments to the deans, if warranted, on the basis of the woman's merit in comparison with that of male counterparts. The review process focused primarily on the equity of female faculty salaries (though the committee was open to identifying male faculty members in similar situations). To assist the college salary review, the Office of Institutional Studies provided several kinds of faculty data (name, rank, sex, level, date of highest earned degree, and current salary). Following the review, adjustments were recommended for a total of 32 women and 4 men. A total of 19 women and 4 men received $36,138 in special merit adjustments ($29,266 for women and $6,872 for men). The statistics indicated that total female faculty salaries in fiscal year 1989 were $57,923 greater than those predicted from men's 1988 salaries. The four appendices cover: background; statistical study design; units reviewed in 1989; and linear regression analysis. Contains 6 references. (SM)
