Why is Duke paying female faculty less?

26311-GenderDiversity (1) (1)

Across the country, female faculty at 4-year private colleges earn up to 14% less than their male counterparts.1

At Duke, female faculty receive lower pay than their male counterparts, at rates that exceed the national average.

Across job titles, from lecturer to full professor, the salary disadvantage at Duke is up to 26% less. For full-time female faculty, this means only 74 cents on the dollar.

Since faculty salary data is only available for full-time faculty, it’s likely that data on part-time faculty salaries would reveal an even higher overall gender pay gap.
