Colorado State Professors Get Raises After Salary Equity Review

FORT COLLINS, Colo. ― Colorado State University has increased salaries for 59 professors after a recent salary equity review.

The Coloradoan reports that the review found that 25 percent of full female professors and 11.6 percent of male full professors reviewed weren’t being paid enough.

In an email sent to faculty Tuesday morning, CSU officials wrote that the average salary increase was 5.4 percent. It did not say which departments the professors were from.

Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs Daniel Bush told the Coloradoan that male professors needed an average raise of $4,787 and female professors needed $5,214 to reach an appropriate salary level.

He said it would be “speculation” to say why there’s a difference between the number of male and female professors who needed salary adjustments.
