The University of Denver Sturm College of Law has agreed to increase the compensation of an associate professor who sued in June, claiming she was underpaid compared with her male and nonminority faculty colleagues, the professor’s lawyer said Thursday.

The university is boosting plaintiff Rashmi Goel’s annual pay; giving her an annual stipend for her work with the law school’s Rocky Mountain Collective on Race, Place & Law; compensating her for back pay and emotional distress; and paying her attorney fees, said Goel’s attorney, Charlotte Sweeney of the Denver firm Sweeney & Bechtold.
