Procedures under the Collective Bargaining Agreement, Article XII, Section 4. Merit Awards – General Principles will be followed. The Faculty Advisory Committee (FAC) will oversee the review process of the merit award. The award will be broken down into three categories of documented meritorious Faculty performance. There will be 20% for Service, 30% for Teaching and 50% for Research. Faculty members are responsible to submit the required documentation needed to be evaluated to the FAC for review. The FAC should meet, discuss the evaluations submitted and make a ranking. They should then vote to determine the FAC recommendation and ranking. With this recommendation in mind, the Director’s recommendation is then made to the Dean and communicated to the Faculty.
