By DONOVAN HARRELL

Robert Goga, director of the Office of Institutional Research, presented the annual report on mean and median salaries for full-time Pitt employees to the Senate Budget Policies Committee on April 17.

The report, based on salaries for the fiscal year 2019-20, is organized by school, position and reporting unit. 

It shows the mean and median salaries of all regular, non-temporary, full-time employees that were faculty and staff as of Oct. 31, 2018, Goga said. Research and postdoctoral associates aren’t included in the report. 

The salary pool for full-time employees saw increases ranging from 2 to 2.5 percent. Employees earning a salary of $47,638 or less saw a “maintenance increase” of 2.5 percent. The inflation rate was roughly 1.9 percent.
