It is the purpose of this policy to establish a salary plan for faculty, which will promote teaching excellence within the System. The Board intends that the college presidents shall have sole responsibility for establishing salary plans for faculty of their colleges.
This policy applies to regular faculty members employed by the state system community colleges.
Each college shall develop a salary allocation plan. The plans must include a merit-driven process to guide individual salary decisions. The salary allocation plans shall be reviewed by the System President.
The college president shall establish initial placement/hiring rate procedures that shall include at a minimum the following factors:
There shall be two categories of salary adjustments, base building and non-base building. Faculty may be eligible for either of these types of salary adjustment. Merit shall be the prevailing factor in all salary adjustments.
The System President shall develop system-wide guidelines for the distribution of annual salary adjustments. Responsibility for developing faculty salary plans rests with the college presidents.
