Following allegations of pay discrimination from the Department of Labor, Princeton University will pay close to $1 million in back pay to female professors.

(CNN)Following allegations of pay discrimination from the Department of Labor, Princeton University has agreed to pay close to $1 million in back pay to female professors.

In addition to the money, the university has also agreed to conduct statistical analyses to determine further significant disparities against female professors, as well as pay equity training for its staff.

The Department of Labor began its review of Princeton nearly a decade ago, Ben Chang, a spokesman for the university, said in a statement.

"The University contested the OFCCP's allegation because it was based on a flawed statistical model that grouped all full professors together regardless of department and thus bore no resemblance to how the University actually hires, evaluates, and compensates its faculty," Chang said.

The university, located in Princeton, New Jersey, agreed to the resolution in an effort to avoid expensive and lengthy litigation, Chang said.
