Getting Started

At James Madison University, we are committed to providing our expert faculty and staff with competitive compensation.

“Total Compensation” includes not only salary, but also additional benefits such as paid leave, insurance benefits, retirement plans, educational assistance programs and more. Just as an example, insurance benefits available for qualifying JMU employees include health, dental, vision, and life. The total compensation estimator provides current and prospective employees with an illustrated breakdown of their total compensation.
