What we earn: Annual report details salaries

Among the nine executives, administrators and managers in the Office of the Senior Vice Chancellor for Health Sciences, the average salary was $204,195 as of Oct. 31, 2007.

During the same period, the 27 lecturers/others in the School of Medicine earned average salaries of $17,075.

Those highs and lows — and everything in between — appear in a recent report by Pitt’s Management Information and Analysis office. Copies of the annual report on salaries of full-time Pitt employees were distributed at the March 27 University Senate budget policies committee (BPC) meeting. BPC, which is charged with monitoring Pitt salaries and salary policies, is expected to discuss the data at a future meeting.

The report, which covers all 45 Pitt responsibility centers, is an in-house companion to a financial disclosure report that the University is required to submit to the state annually. It covers both the mean (or average) and median salaries of full-time Pitt employees as of Oct. 31, 2007, the latest complete figures available. The median is the salary for the employee whose pay falls in the middle of the group — with an equal number of salaries above and below.

The fiscal year 2008 report offers a snapshot of faculty and staff salaries for each responsibility center, categorized by faculty rank or staff job classification.
