Staff Compensation Project

After 18 months of compensation project work, the independent equity analysis and the salary survey data gathering process have been completed resulting in both the faculty and staff compensation delivery models. 

As presented and proposed to the Board of Regents, the 2015 Fiscal Year Compensation Objectives are to establish:

  • A base minimum floor where no staff employee would be below 80%* of the market,
  • Provide an additional 4% ** across the board increase to all staff below the market and,
  • Provide an extra 5% *** across the board one-time lump-sum payment to all staff. Staff employees hired by July 1st will be eligible.

Ongoing Compensation Objective: Continue salary adjustments towards 100% of the market based on available funds each FY.
