Posted June 10, 2019
The University at Buffalo concluded that there was no statistical evidence of gender, race or ethnicity-based pay inequity among ladder faculty in the 2016-17 academic year.
There was no statistical evidence of gender, race or ethnicity-based pay inequity among ladder faculty at UB in the 2016-17 academic year, according to the results of a report issued by the university’s Gender Equity Salary Study (GESS) committee.
The findings resulting from the analysis of 1,042 full-time, tenured and tenure-eligible faculty found no statistically significant earnings gap between women and men at the university in the 2016-17 study group.
“Gender equality in salaries is a reasonable expectation of everyone at the University at Buffalo,” said Philip Glick, professor, director of the MD/MBA program in the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences and chair of the Faculty Senate. “This study demonstrates our shared sense of purpose at all levels of the faculty and the administration, and why shared governance principles work.”
