CSU denies newspaper’s request for digital copy of salary report

From the Coloradoan (Fort Collins): Colorado State University has identified faculty members earning less than expected according to a statistical model, and is individually reviewing each case, the university reports.

CSU Executive Vice President Rick Miranda recently communicated the findings to faculty via email.

Working in parallel, the Fort Collins university’s 11-person Salary Equity Committee has met for the first time and received its charge from Miranda: develop a new salary model that will best identify outlier salaries and trends.

In May, the Coloradoan first reported potential salary inequity at CSU. The formation of the committee was announced at that time.

The committee’s work is still extremely early — members described the Oct. 26 meeting as being used to set the group’s parameters — but members say they’re hopeful it will yield meaningful results for the university.

“Really, the first meeting was about learning,” said Diana Prieto, committee chair and CSU Executive Director for Human Resources and Equal Opportunity.

The committee is being guided by the ESR Group, a consultancy that specializes in salary equity, in finding a model that will best suit CSU. Prieto said she has not received ESR’s first bill and couldn’t estimate how much its services would cost the university.
