Faculty Rewards and Recognition Committee

To remain a competitive institution that attracts a range of students, we must also consider how we incentivize our faculty to be engaged and collaborative and to contribute to the University's mission by appropriately and consistently rewarding them for their achievements in the classroom and beyond. This group will utilize both internal data (e.g., salary structures, faculty workload agreements, available benefits, annual review data) and external data (e.g., analysis of promotion and tenure process at peer institutions) to guide their process.

This effort will also recognize the importance of faculty contributions in the areas of diversity and inclusion and will ensure that under-represented and minoritized faculty are equitably valued and rewarded.

By examining our current processes and identifying new areas of need and of opportunity, we will improve our current system and reward faculty for their excellence and impact.
