In February of 2015, compensation consultant Frank Casagrande returned to campus to present an update on the Commission's work, and provide information on aging the full-time faculty salary framework to represent the most current market data.
The Commission met to begin work with Frank Casagrande exploring the next steps in addressing the remaining goals recommended by the Commission in 2012. These goals include addressing issues of equity and competitiveness.
In April the Commission had its second meeting with Frank Casagrande to continue its work addressing the remaining goals. This included an in-depth discussion of compensation concepts, equity and competitiveness models, and merit distribution tools.
The Commission held its final meeting with Frank Casagrande. During this meeting, the Commission reviewed the results of the funding priority survey that was sent to Commission members, the Council of Deans, and faculty department chairs. Based on the results of the survey and discussions in the meeting, the Commission decided on a set of recommendations regarding how funding should be used to continue addressing inequities within full-time faculty compensation. The recommendations will be presented to the President and taken to the Board of Regents.
