Performance and Compensation

Compensation Program

The Washington and Lee University Compensation Program is designed to attract, retain and reward a highly qualified and diverse workforce. We do so by offering a combination of rewards beginning with competitive, market-based pay opportunities supported by other rewards such as a positive work environment, generous benefits, and career development, growth and recognition opportunities. This rewards package helps differentiate the University from other employers. The Compensation Program is closely tied to the Performance Development Program, aligning pay with performance.
