Information about Stanford Faculty Compensation:

  • Stanford Faculty Handbook section on Salaries Stanford University provides compensation to faculty members in the form of salary and other benefits. The descriptions in Chapter 5 of the Faculty Handbook provide some basic information about compensation and benefit plans.
  • Lobbying for Pay Equity for Women Faculty, a short video clip about faculty salary and compensation equity from the 2018 oral history featuring the late Deborah Rhode, the Ernest W. McFarland Professor of Law and the Director of the Center on the Legal Profession, and a former co-chair of the Faculty Women's Forum steering committee
  • 2004 Report of the Provost's Advisory Committee on the Status of Women Faculty (PACSWF) offers historical perspective and data analysis related to a variety of concerns about compensation equity for faculty at Stanford, and suggests recommended future actions. The PACSWF Subcommittee on Compensation, Resources, and Recognition was charged with examining material or monetary compensation and support for Stanford faculty, to identify possible areas of gender disparity for further study, and, where appropriate, to propose strategies for amelioration.
