Salary Equity University Announcement
Old Dominion University is committed to equitable compensation practices. In as much, an annual salary equity review is conducted to identify and address possible inequities in salaries of faculty and administrators. The focus of the review examines any differences in salary that could be affected by gender or ethnicity. Adjustments made through this process are for equity only and will not address problems of merit or compression although either of these factors could justify a salary differential.
Cases for review are identified by the Office of Institutional Equity and Diversity, the Association of University Administrators, the Coalition of Black Faculty and Administrators, the Hispanic/Latino Employee Association, Asian and Asian-American Faculty Caucus, and the Women's Caucus. You may also self-identify. For self-identification submissions, please fill out and submit the self-identification form (found on Equity and Diversity's website) and the required supporting statement. The statement should include a rationale supporting the belief that your salary may be adversely impacted because of gender and/or ethnicity.
Please note, when cases are forwarded for justification/recommendation, Deans and Vice Presidents will not be notified of how the request for review was initiated. Once a recommendation or justification has been provided by the Dean or Vice President, this office will review the response in light of all relevant supplemental information. On the basis of this review, this office will request clarification and additional information to support the proffered justification.
In anticipation of the University's annual salary equity review, the Office of Institutional Equity and Diversity will hold two informational sessions that will provide faculty and administrators an overview of the process as well as an opportunity to ask related questions.
The sessions will be held on:
February 12th from 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm in Constant Hall Room 2003
February 19th from 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm in Constant Hall Room 2003
Please send requests to the Office of Institutional Equity and Diversity no later than March 1, 2013 by 5:00 p.m. Requests may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or faxed to 683-5844.
For more information on the process please attend one of the Q&A Sessions to be held on February 12th and 19th or call 683-3141.
