Labor issues have been a part of the history of William & Mary since its founding. Information about the relationship between the College and slavery and Women at William & 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 & 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.12 The website Collegiate Times also began publishing salaries of instructional and professional faculty as well as administrators online in 2009 in a searchable database.

A note about the contents of this site

This website contains the best available information from known sources at the time it was written. Unfortunately, many of the early original records of William & Mary were destroyed by fires, military occupation, and the normal effects of time. The information in this website is not complete, and it changes as we continue to research and uncover new sources.
