Faculty Compensation and Benefits Committee (FCBC)

Each year the Faculty Compensation and Benefits Committee (FCBC) publishes a report that compares the salary data of Ohio State's faculty to that of faculty at peer institutions in the B1G and AAU. In addition, the committee studies data within the university, looking broadly at diversity across initiatives and colleges. FCBC also monitors any university hiring or budgetary decisions that impact faculty lines. The committee's annual report contains recommendations for addressing concerns.
