9.12 Summer Salaries
Given the university priority of attracting and retaining highly qualified faculty for the overall good of the institution, for attracting, educating and graduating students, and for making a significant impact regionally and at the state level as well as nationally and internationally, the University of North Georgia must set appropriate levels of compensation and adjust those levels as future circumstances necessitate. In sum, the University of North Georgia recognizes that the best faculty and staff require competitive salaries to attract them and to retain their services for the good of the students.
Faculty will receive compensation based on a number of factors, including discipline, rank, professional credentialing, time of service, and annual evaluations. The University of North Georgia is committed to appropriate compensation considering these factors and in comparison with peer institutions nationally. Compensation should be equal and within a prescribed range using nationally-recognized data (CUPA-HR or SREB, for example). Faculty equity adjustments should be a top institutional priority to achieve sufficiency and appropriate levels of compensation for faculty.
