Their main takeaway from this meeting is that everything is based on benchmarks.  Council discussed the meeting and had some questions for FB to ask Kristin Fino.

The minutes from the September 29th FB meeting were approved and are now posted on the Faculty Governance Webpage.

The committee was update on items pertaining to FB. The budget approved by the Board included enough to fund all steps and promotions for those that were eligible and for an increase of 0.75% to the Professor and Associate Professor salary scales and a 1.25% increase to the Instructor and Assistant Professor salary scales. According to Academic Affairs, faculty members that were eligible, but did not receive a step increase in 2015-16, did receive a step increase in 2016-17 and will next be eligible for a step increase in 2018-19. Wyoming Seminary is in control of the tuition discount given for King’s dependents as the program is much more heavily used by King’s employees than Wyoming Seminary employees. Kristin Fino will be attending the November 3rd FB meeting. Continue reading

Chair’s update September 29th FB meeting

The minutes from the September 15th FB meeting were approved and are now posted on the Faculty Governance webpage.

The committee was update on items pertaining to FB from last Friday’s Faculty Council meeting.  Council endorsed the faculty salary changes recommended by FB.

The Committee was given an update on parking. Campus security is looking into concerns that the upper courthouse lot is sometimes full especially on Tuesdays and Thursdays. There were also concerns raised that the new gate on the visitor lot between the McGowan and Administration buildings prevents faculty from being able to use that lot after hours. It was noted that the new gate has an intercom and that faculty needing to park in that lot after hours can be buzzed in by campus security.

The Committee looked at the results of the Faculty Benefits survey. Continue reading

Chair’s update September 15th FB meeting

The Chair gave an update on items pertaining to FB from last Friday’s Faculty Council meeting. Fr. Ryan affirmed that the 3% proposed increase to the Faculty salary pool is inclusive of promotions. Faculty Council would like an update with the problems identified with the Faculty Leaves policy before FB continues its work.

The Minutes from the September 1st meeting were approved and are now available on the Faculty Governance website.

The Committee then discussed a recommendation for Faculty Salary Scale adjustments. With the 3% increase being inclusive of promotions, after funding promotions and steps for faculty that are due, only ~1% of total faculty salaries is left. It was discussed that based on most comparison groups assistant professors are still further from parity then Associate and Professors and that this is still a remnant of initially giving a large salary adjustment to the Professor salary scale in the 2010-11 academic year, followed a year later by an adjustment to the Associate scale and then the budget being frozen before an adjustment could be made to the Assistant salary scale. It was also noted that all faculty experienced a significant increase to health care costs for the current year. By a vote of 5-0, the following recommendation was approved by Faculty Benefits: Continue reading
