Policy Number: 4-3
Policy Name: Compensation for Faculty on Academic Year Appointments
Date: January 2000

  1. PURPOSE

    To provide a policy statement on salary payments for faculty on academic year appointments (9/1-8/31).

  2. POLICY

    All regular members of the teaching staff of the University are fully engaged for the whole year of fifty-two weeks. While, normally, members of the teaching staff are required to teach for only nine months annually, responsibilities of faculty to the University do not cease during the summer months. As a result, faculty under contract from September 1 to August 31, will be paid in the normal manner during that period rather than a lump sum payment in June for their remaining months of service under their contracts. This insures that faculty fringe benefits are covered during this time period
