Labor issues

From Special Collections Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Labor issues have been a part of the history of the College of William and Mary since its founding. Information about the relationship between the College and slavery and Women at the College of William and Mary (particularly women faculty) is also available. The relationship between the College and its labor force remains complex and includes a host of issues related to gender, race, faculty housing, a living wage, retirement and other benefits, as well as other issues.

Salary information for William and Mary faculty and staff is available as part of the Human Resources Records in the Special Collections Research Center, Swem Library. (Note: The salary lists portion of the collection are requested annually by the University Archivist from Human Resources and are not part of a transfer of records by the office.) In recent years, the student newspaper the Virginia Informer has published lists of the salaries of instructional and adjunct faculty.[1][2] The website Collegiate Times also began publishing salaries of instructional and professional faculty as well as administrators online in 2009 in a searchable database.
