Section 8.1


New Chair appointments will be made on a fiscal year basis. In addition to a base salary, each Chair/Director will receive an administrative stipend relative to departmental size equivalent to 9/11 of the amounts listed below:

    FTE Faculty Members
    10 or fewer 11 - 20 21 or more
Number of Undergraduate Majors 50 or fewer $4,000 $6,000 $8,000
51 - 200 $4,500 $6,500 $8,500
251 or more $5,000 $7,000 $9,000

Chair will also receive a summer stipend which is equivalent to 1/9 of the base salary for AMIS, ECON, MGMT and MKT departments, and equivalent to 1/18 of the base salary for ASOR and FIN departments. For a more detailed description of the chair compensation, please see Faculty Administrator Position and Compensation Guidelines.

Merit increases will be made as justified on the basis of performance in teaching, research, and administration of the unit.

The chair is responsible at all times for direct supervision of the unit. Whenever a Chair plans to be away from the office for professional business or vacation, the Dean is informed of the absence and the name of the faculty serving as Acting Chair.

The administrative stipend is intended to compensate the Chair for the extra administrative responsibilities and obligations required by the position. This does not imply that Chairs may not receive a reduction in teaching load in order to allow for time to carry out those duties adequately and completely. It is expected, however, that every chair will devote some part of the working year to the teaching of courses within the department.

When a Chair leaves that office, whether by resignation, recall, or non-reappointment, the next contract issued would reflect the base faculty salary for the academic year plus an increment for merit where appropriate.
