UC San Francisco Faculty Salary Equity Review


The University of California (UC) system has embarked on a broad effort to identify and correct inequities in compensation for women and URM faculty. Following the completion of a study by the UC system on faculty salary equity, then-UC president Mark Yudof charged individual UC campuses to perform their own studies in 2012. In response, Vice Provost of Academic Affairs Brian Alldredge convened a committee (working November 2013 through January 2015) to conduct a formal review of faculty salary equity in the schools of Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing, and Pharmacy.

The committee now conducts annual salary equity reviews with the expectation that each school provide a reporting and action plan to address salary inequities. A final report outlining findings and recommendations is then submitted to the Chancellor.

Committee Composition and Charge

The Faculty Salary Equity Review (FSER) committee includes representation from the Schools of Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing, and Pharmacy, three Academic Senate committees, office of Vice Provost Academic Affairs, and the Vice Chancellor for Diversity and Outreach.

The Committee meets monthly from December- April and is expected to address potential salary imbalances by gender and underrepresented minority status. The committee will:

  1. Review action plans submitted by the schools and provide the chancellor with recommendations based on these reports;
  2. If needed, consider changes to the methodology and/or data capture for the salary equity analysis with the goal of improving future analyses.

For each review cycle, the data used for analysis includes the scheduled X+Y salary for the current FY year and clinical income made over the previous FY (which are paid in arrears). For example the report submitted in 2019 uses the salary data from FY18-19 (July 1, 2018- June 30, 2019) and clinical incentive payments from FY17-18 (July 1, 2017- June 30, 2018) for analysis.
