|Compensation of Chairs and Academic Program Directors
Administrative Supplement for Departmental Chairs
As compensation for expected summer presence and activity (typically 50%

salary incremented during the period of service.
Upon satisfactory completion of the first term of service as chair or academic
program director, the one-ninth shall be added to the base salary.
Under normal circumstances a second term as chair or academic program director
does not result in the permanent addition of a second ninth to the base
salary, but one-ninth of the base salary is continued during the period
Departmental chairs on nine-month contracts receive an administrative supplement
of $5,000 and those on eleven-month contracts an administrative supplement
of $5,500 during the period of service as chair.
In addition to merit percent increases calculated on the base salary, the
same percentage is applied annually to the chairs administrative supplement
to determine a new base salary.
The administrative supplement is pro-rated during any period of sabbatical
leave or leave of absence from the position of chair and ceases upon return
of the chair to the faculty.
