FPC

Approved by senate; Disapproved by University President

Recommendation that for the academic years 2001/02 to 2006/07, we believe it is necessary to be involved in all stages of developing the Marshall University compacts under the new legislation for higher education.  In addition, this recommendation should be incorporated and linked to Executive Policy Bulletin #5.   As planning proceeds, we believe the following priorities are essential for faculty salaries:

First Priority:  to bring the median faculty salary at each rank and discipline to 100 per cent of peer salaries by academic year 2006/07.

Second Priority:  that each faculty member have a target salary based on discipline, rank, and experience and that individual faculty salaries at the highest percentage of target not exceed those at the lowest percentage of target by more than 5 percent among faculty whose performance is rated as effective or better.
