Upon promotion in academic rank, a faculty member shall receive an increase in salary of 10% of the departmental median salary of all full-time faculty in the rank held before promotion. The increase shall be based upon salaries in effect at the beginnin g of the academic year in which the promotion decision is made. The dean may recommend a larger increase to the Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs with appropriate supporting documentation.
A salary increase for promotion shall be in addition to any which may be granted for merit, standard increment, or equity.
If the adjusted salary of the newly promoted person exceeds that of others in the new rank in the department, the dean shall provide to the Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs an analysis and a plan to correct any inequities. A faculty member whose salary has been exceeded by the newly promoted person shall be so informed by the dean, within three months, and shall be given at that time a copy of the analysis and plan the dean has submitted to the Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs. This does not imply that the salary level of such individuals shall necessarily be brought to or above that of the newly promoted person.
This Policy shall not apply to a faculty member whose contract specifies a change of rank and salary upon completion of a terminal degree or other requirement.
This policy is effective July 1, 1994.
