Faculty Promotion Salary Adjustments

Faculty receive a salary increase for promotion from assistant to associate rank and for promotion from associate to full rank.  The amount of the increase will be set at a flat 10% increase for each of the major promotions. Individuals who receive promotion increases and who also receive an administrative stipend will have the promotion applied to their base salary as a faculty member. Salary amounts and the calculation methodology for the increases are subject to regular review and change.  All salary increases are contingent on the availability of funding.
