  • Representation: Humanities

  • Physical Sciences

  • Social Sciences

  • Percent women at each rank for each department grouping

  • Representation of Women in A&SHumanities & Social Sciences have long had predominant numbers of women graduate students in the faculty pipeline surprising (shocking) lack of women facultyPhysical Sciences is unsurprising At Instructor/Lecturer level equal females/males, but clearly at Associate/Full Professor level males outnumber femalesPotential glass ceiling at instructor/lecturer level for humanities and at associate level for social sciences

  • Compensation: Humanities

  • individually.

  • Physical Sciences

  • individually

  • Social Sciences

  • 9 Month Salary SummaryBar graphs show:Median differences are few and just as likely to favor women Full professor women in humanities and social science make more than men but not in physical sciences (94.8%)Associate professor women in social sciences make less than men (92.3%)

    Scatter plots show:Low numbers of women with less spread than men in salariesEspecially evident for full professors in physical sciencesNone-salaried higher ranked faculty are men9 month salaries may not be a problem for most women

  • Time in Rank: Humanities

  • Time in Rank: Physical Sciences

  • Time in Rank: Social Sciences

  • Time in Rank & Salary SummaryWomen have much shorter time in rank more recent pipeline? Or survivors are more likely to advance and/or leave?Few general downward slopes show salary compressions but may not be as problematic as thoughtGreatest concern is for associates with time in ranks of greater than 10 years problems with advancement particularly in social sciences

  • Added Compensation: Humanities

  • Physical Sciences

  • Social Sciences

  • individually

  • Added Compensation: SummaryUnlike salaries, large median differences in humanities and social sciences women make 64.9%, 84.1% and 51.2% as men assistants, associates and full professors in humanities; Women make 75.4%, 90.9% and 80.5% as men assistants, associates and full professors in social sciencesHow do men and women make their added compensation?

  • what is Added Compensation?

  • Added Compensation: SummaryAdded compensation includes all other sources of income from university predominantly summer teaching and research dollarsMen advantaged in humanities and social sciences in teaching but not in research accounts for differences in earningsResearch dollars from summer grants are usually percentages of base salary dollars, so women have a double whammy when they are paid less than men

  • Distribution of Effort

  • DOE: SummarySurprisingly men teach moreAssociate and full professor women do more administrative worknot recognized as fte administratorsMay prevent promotion and be uncompensatedRequires further consideration.

  • OverallSurprising lack of senior women in A&SEconomic opportunities not as equal as assumed especially for opportunities to supplement base salary with added compensationClearly equity is a campus-wide concernUseful pilot collegePotential for more analyses and for increasing awareness so that policies may be changed
