Percent Total Compensation

Gender Equity

In April 2012, we made our first report of total compensation (as opposed to nine-month academic rates). Total compensation includes academic rate plus supplements (usually endowment funds from professorships and chairs). The first analysis included the total census of full professors in 2007 and 2010 (2010 being the first opportunity for pay increase since the Gender Equity Task Force Report in 2008). Except for the change in type of compensation, the analysis is identical to the one reported in December and includes control variables such as field and years at UT (but not productivity which was not measured). Women at the full professor rank earned 6 percent less than men in 2007 and 5 percent less in 2010 indicating that the gap in total compensation decreased by 1 percent.

After completing an identical analysis comparing the 2010 faculty data to that of the tenure track professors employed at the university in 2011, we found that women at the full professor rank earned 4 percent less in 2011, indicating that the gap in total compensation has decreased by an additional 1 percent since 2010.

Note that the gap in total compensation is slightly higher than the gap in academic rate and, therefore, identifies a point of needed attention and effort.




Percentages of UT Faculty by Gender and Rank

In fall 2012, we analyzed our faculty composition by gender and rank between the years 1993 and 2012. We found that the percentage of female full professors has been slowly but steadily increasing, from 10 percent in 1993 to 22 percent in 2012. The percentage of female associate professors grew between 1993 and 2004 but has since been fairly constant at around 38 percent of all associate professors. Besides small increases from 1993-96, the percentage of female assistant professors has remained at around 42 percent across the years.
