Amendment to Faculty Merit Pay Policy and Faculty Tenure and Promotion Policy

BE IT RESOLVED THAT: the following modifications to the existing language of the Faculty Merit Pay Policy (Bill 08-A-05) and the Faculty Tenure and Promotion Policy (Bill 08-A-04) be made:

1. The current language of the Faculty Merit Pay Policy (Bill 08-A-05) "...faculty will receive a salary increase funded by a pool consisting of at least 75 percent of the aggregate amount of each years' faculty salary increase determined through the annual budget review process", WILL BE REPLACED BY, "...faculty will receive a salary increase funded by a pool of monies allocated for each years' faculty salary increase determined through the annual budget review process. Any monies allocated for Promotion or Post-professorial Merit will not be included in the calculation of the percentage salary increase for faculty reported to any and all media outlets."

2. The current language of the Faculty Promotion and Tenure Policy (Bill 08-A-04) "The base pay increases will be funded by a pool consisting of no more than 25 percent of the aggregate amount of each year's faculty salary increase determined through the annual budget review process", WILL BE REPLACED BY, "The base pay increases will be funded by a pool of monies included in the University's annual cost of continuing determined through the annual budget review process. The amount specified in each year's budget will be determined by means of a computed rolling average based upon the monies required to fund promotion and post-professorial merit each year for the past four years (beginning in FY 08) for the FY 12 Budget.

Rationale and Justification:

The language specified by the Faculty Merit Pay Policy (Bill 08-A-05) and the Faculty Tenure and Promotion Policy (Bill 08-A-04) no longer accurately describes the method of allocation of monies for merit or promotion given current and likely future budget circumstances that affect Southeast Missouri State University. Thus, the language requires modification in the manner specified above.
