Unique Challenges in Higher Education

Our services embrace the complex needs of higher education institutions through Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion program evaluations, OFCCP Compliance services, and much more. Often, higher education institutions are federal contractors, but they operate a little differently than a typical organization. We are here to serve as your trusted partner.

Are you a federal contractor?
  • What is your compensation structure?
    Compensation in colleges and universities is often very different from traditional structures.
  • How many AAPs do you have?
    Having multiple AAPs in higher education is normal. 
  • What does your employee population look like?
    It’s important to consider the reporting differences for faculty v. non-faculty, or tenure v. non-tenure. 
  • What are the employment scenarios like at your school?
    For example, employees that teach only part time may need to be considered differently.
  • How many campuses does your school have?
    This may impact your compliance. Many higher education institutions consider FAAPs to group their employees by department, rather than location. 
  • How recent or complete is your availability analysis?
    Staff availability may be difficult to estimate. 
Making a difference in your school

We help universities and colleges with their Diversity Equity and Inclusion needs, workforce equity, and pay equity.
