The Yeshiva University Benefits Committee

Benefits are an important part of the University's total compensation program.  The Benefits Committee ("The Committee") is established to advise Yeshiva University administration on the ongoing evaluation of the University's benefits programs to ensure that they are competitive in the academic marketplace, effective, affordable and meet the majority needs of our employees.  

The Committee is the representative body by which faculty and staff members participate in the development of changes to the University's benefits programs.  The Committee's role is to bring forward and address benefit issues and needs and to offer advice, solutions and recommendations. The authority of the Benefits Committee is limited to providing advice to the President of Yeshiva University on issues and initiatives in the area of benefits.  

The Committee is chaired by the Chief Human Resources Officer and meets at least four times during the academic year. The committee's membership is drawn from the various faculty and staff constituencies at all of the campuses and includes the General Counsel, Director of Benefits at least one member of the faculty and one member of the staff. The Chief Human Resources Officer may also supplement committee membership to ensure a demographically and organizationally diverse Committee, with up to five members.
