Faculty Salary Equity Study
During the 2013-2014 academic year, the Chancellor’s Status of Women Committee (co-chaired by Michael Urban and Jordan Hoyt) and the Status of Women Committee in the College of Arts and Science (chaired by Linda Reeder) independently requested that the campus complete a rigorous, external analysis of faculty salaries on issues related to equity. After carefully reviewing the request, Chancellor Loftin and then Interim Provost Ken Dean decided to proceed. In consultation with the Status of Women Committees, MU selected Dr. Robert K. Toutkoushian to conduct our study. A Professor of Higher Education in the Institute of Higher Education at the University of Georgia, Dr. Toutkoushian specializes in faculty/staff compensation, and his work on faculty compensation has been widely published. A more detailed description of his qualifications is provided in this report.
