Faculty Pay Equity Study, December 2008

In April 2006, the University of Hawai‘i President’s Office and the University of Hawai‘i Professional Assembly jointly funded a system-wide Pay Equity Study of faculty salaries in regards to gender and ethnicity. The guiding principle of the study is a commitment to affirmative action and to preventing and correcting sex and ethnic disparities in compensation.

This study examines whether there are disparities in faculty pay associated with a faculty member’s sex or ethnicity, after controlling for job related factors such as campus, college, rank, tenure status, degree, classification and date of hire. “Productivity” and job-market forces must be analyzed and considered after this initial statistical analysis identifies groups who should be further reviewed.
