Compensation Structure

The compensation structure is an important part of a compensation program that supports competitive and equitable pay. The information listed below is for unclassified professional staff and university support staff. More information on the subjects and terms used below can be found in the compensation structure glossary.

The Total Rewards study did not include unclassified professionals who also hold faculty status or are faculty members.

Learn more by reviewing K-State's compensation methodology and Total Rewards FAQs.
