Criteria, performance expectations, and Department/School procedures relating to Faculty Excellence Awards

Merit Salary Increments

When salary raises for merit are available, faculty members will be asked to describe and document their contributions in the scholarships of discovery, integration, application, teaching and university service according to the University guidelines and policies on merit salary increments.  The weights of each category will be determined by FAC and the Chairperson for the year; publications and teaching evaluations are to be submitted. The FAC will review all the materials and compile a list of meritorious faculty for recommendation to the Chair, who will submit these recommendations to the Dean.  It is the discretion of the Chair to accept or reject the recommendations of the FAC, but the Chairperson is accountable to the FAC and must explain his or her reasoning.
