Salary Structures

Maintaining a market based, yet internally equitable salary structure can be difficult since these priorities are often in direct conflict with each other. Basic supply and demand pressures can create economic forces that result in higher compensation for employees in certain fields in comparison to individuals with greater job responsibilities in another field. For example, during the technology "boom" of the 1990s, computer programmers were able to demand higher salaries than some managers in other industries. To address these often conflicting priorities, the University's compensation program consists of the following three (3) salary structures to account for varied market conditions and to ensure that staff compensation is both fair and equitable.
