Compensation Practices

Wesleyan University strives to provide a high-quality liberal arts education to a diverse community of students. Achieving this mission requires an equally diverse group of highly qualified employees who are rewarded and recognized for their contributions. Therefore, the University supports a compensation program that:

  • Is aligned with the University’s mission, is administered in a financially sustainable manner, and complies with all applicable legal requirements.
  • Provides compensation that is competitive within appropriate labor markets and considers living wage principles.
  • Rewards achievements and outcomes.
  • Administers compensation in an equitable manner.
  • Values campus and community engagement and work/life balance.
