  • Slide 26
  • what is Added Compensation?
  • Slide 27
  • Added Compensation: Summary Added compensation includes all other sources of income from university predominantly summer teaching and research dollars Men advantaged in humanities and social sciences in teaching but not in research accounts for differences in earnings Research dollars from summer grants are usually percentages of base salary dollars, so women have a double whammy when they are paid less than men
  • Slide 28
  • Distribution of Effort
  • Slide 29
  • DOE: Summary Surprisingly men teach more Associate and full professor women do more administrative worknot recognized as fte administrators May prevent promotion and be uncompensated Requires further consideration.
  • Slide 30
  • Overall Surprising lack of senior women in A&S Economic opportunities not as equal as assumed especially for opportunities to supplement base salary with added compensation Clearly equity is a campus-wide concern Useful pilot college Potential for more analyses and for increasing awareness so that policies may be changed
