In October 2014, Human Resources announced that with support from the President, Provost, and VP for Business & Finance, we will begin the process of modernizing the compensation system and structure for unclassified staff employees. The process will, in part, guide our future compensation direction for all non-faculty positions as we intend to undertake a Total Compensation study and have therefore encouraged classified staff employees participation as well.
After reviewing thirty applications, taking into consideration the highly preferred qualifications of a committee member as well as our commitment to a well-rounded representation of the Wright State non-faculty members, a committee of fourteen members was selected. At this time, we would like to introduce to the Wright State Community our Total Compensation Advisory Committee which will work in partnership with Human Resources over the next 18 months.

If you run into any of these individuals, please thank them for their willingness to serve and their commitment to this important work.
