UVA Base Wage Increase
The University of Virginia raised its base wage for employees (sometimes called a living wage), effective January 1, 2020. This includes full-time and part-time benefits eligible employees in the Academic Division, Medical Center and UPG.
In addition, several major contractors who work with the University are following suit and plan to raise the base wage for their employees who are working at UVA.
UVA is committed to improving the lives of our employees, and President Ryan established the UVA Community Working Group to address efforts at reducing inequities including salaries and affordable housing in the area.
