Subject: Compensation and Faculty Assignment of Administrators Holding Rank
Approval Date: 06/13/86
To outline the pay and faculty assignment policy for administrators who hold academic rank.
Administrators who qualify may receive academic rank and tenure eligibility upon recommendation of the President in consultation with the appropriate departmental faculty and the Vice President for Academic Affairs and approval of the Board of Regents.
Administrators who hold academic rank may apply for promotion and/or tenure through normal promotion and tenure channels.
Those tenure eligible administrators who hold rank are governed by the same rules and regulations for tenure eligible faculty. (See PAc-2).
No administrators without academic credentials will be given rank or tenure.
Individuals, present and prospective, hired into administrative positions in which it is possible to acquire faculty rank and/or tenure shall be paid a base salary comparable to faculty of similar rank, experience and education plus an additional sum for an extended contract and an administrative stipend to bring total compensation to a competitive administrative salary level. In the event and at such a time as that administrator may be reassigned to faculty status, the supplement for the extended contract and the administrative stipend shall be removed. (See PAc-23).
The Vice President for Academic Affairs will be responsible for the calculation of salaries for administrators with rank to be submitted to the President for approval and presentation to the Board of Regents.
