Classification and Compensation Study

The Whitworth Office of Human Resource Services (HRS) has partnered with Segal (formerly Sibson) Consulting Services to conduct a comprehensive classification/compensation study of faculty and staff positions. This multi-year initiative is being undertaken as part of the university's 2021 strategic plan. The purpose of the study is to review and modernize current compensation practices in order to retain and recruit a highly qualified faculty and staff which reflect the university's commitment to its mission, excellence and diversity. 

The members of the Faculty Economic Welfare committee (FEW) and the members of the Staff Salary and Benefits committee (SSBC) will serve as steering committees for their respective constituent groups. Additionally, an advisory team made up of the individuals below will provide overall guidance to the study.

  • Gregor Thuswaldner, Provost and Executive Vice President
  • Larry Probus, Vice President for Finance and Administration
  • Ariane Mondrag√≥n Oglesbee, Interim Chief Human Resource Officer

Status & Updates


Segal has begun to gather data regarding the university's compensation philosophy, structures and practices for the initial analysis of faculty positions. 


Job description questionnaires were collected from the Whitworth staff community in spring 2020. The updated job descriptions will be reviewed by Segal as part of the staff analysis.
