Senior Faculty Raise - University of Wyoming

Senior Faculty Raises First Year Results Context 1986-2006: 7 years in which UW received no legislative appropriations for salary adjustments 1986-2000: 5 years in which UW salary adjustment were 3% or less 2001-2006: Larger adjustments occurred in 2001 (8.1%), 2003 (12.4%), and 2005 (6.2%) 2006: Governor requested raises for all state employees in FY 2007 and FY 2008, averaging 3.5%/year. Consequences Salaries of employees hired in the 80s and into the 90s have not kept pace with the market

Until recently, salaries of retiring faculty had grown too slowly to fully fund the salaries of their replacements, even at the entry level UW lost faculty positions, and the structure of the academic workforce changed to include a somewhat higher proportion of academic professionals. Request to 2006 Legislature: The Governor requested raises averaging 3.5%/year for all state employees. To retain top performing senior faculty UW asked for $3.9M on top of proposed funding for salary increases for the upcoming biennium. Justification: Despite substantial funding for salary increases in recent years, senior faculty salaries still lag significantly behind national market levels for land grant universities like UW. Even including the proposed funding for salary increases for the upcoming biennium, some 213 UW senior

faculty members will have salaries that remain an average of 7% below the national average for land-grant universities. The amount requested included estimates for associated benefits. 2007-2008 Authorizations $26.4 Million = Enough to fund raises for all UW employees, averaging 3.5% for each year of the biennium $2.96 Million = Enough [f]or additional salary increases over the biennium, thus phasing in the request over the two year period. Didnt get enough to fund all of the senior faculty raises in 1 year; got enough to distribute the raises in 2 installments (FY 2007, FY 2008). Amounts available for distribution in senior raises $987K for raises and associated benefits in FY07 $987K to sustain first-year raises and benefits in FY08 $987K for raises and associated benefits in FY08 $2.96M total for 2007-8 biennium Breakdown of annual amount:

$830K for salary increases $157K (19%) for benefits (e.g. retirement) $987K total Distribution Principles Premise: the raise should be targeted toward topperforming senior faculty To avoid smearing out the effect of the raise, we administered it after the general raise and established an eligibility floor. Criteria: Seniority Merit Market Equity Difference, OSU 2005 Defining Seniority: Average Market Difference, Associate + Full Professors 10%

5% 0% -5% <1996 1996 1997 1998 -10% -15% Year Hired 1999 >2000 Eligibility and Criteria Seniority: UW start date of 1996 and earlier Administrators (= deans & higher) not eligible Merit: General raise of at least 2.5% from college

Promote and preserve equity, especially for women and people of color Salary significantly different from relevant market comparator (deans didnt have to use OSU averages) Other compelling justification Process Begin after completing general raise process, to ensure special raise targets senior faculty Early July: circulate data set containing Provide dollar targets for college raise requests July-August:

salaries (before and after general raise), OSU comparator salaries, if we knew them service dates, ranks, gender and ethnicity initial college nominations, AA feedback, final college nominations September: raises appear in paychecks Outcomes 322 senior raises distributed 260 senior faculty members (professor series, plus a few library faculty, and archivists) received $715,512 62 senior extended-term academic professionals (lecturers, extension educators, research

scientists) received $114,480 Average senior raise was $2,578 Range was broad: $492 - $7,200 Different deans approached the raise differently Before and After: UW Faculty Salaries Compared to the LGU Average (AY 2005) %Difference fromthe 2004-2005 Land-Grant Average 5.0% 0.0% -5.0% n=130 n=153 n=181 n=175 n=174 n=146 n=20 8 -10.0% n=212

-7.5% Did we achieve our goal? Compared to the 2004-2005 baseline, the salary gap for full professors narrowed from 14% to 7% Salaries of faculty included in special raise pool rose more than the market Average increase for senior raise pool was 6.8% Full professor salaries at LGUs rose 4% from AY2005 to AY2006 But gap persists for professors We suspect its still a problem for APs, but the OSU data dont include this category Whats ahead?

There is another 3.5% (average) general raise to administer for 2008 There is another $830K to distribute in special senior raises in 2008 Options include: Distributing according to the same rules Including only senior-ranked faculty Including only full professors Others? Questions? Extra slides ONE-TIME PLUS BUDGET ALLOCATIONS (FY2007) Art arc welders and other instructional equipment $25K Theater and Dance

stage upgrades (sound and light systems, etc.) $50K Music Grand piano $90K English instructional equipment for Hoyt $40K video/classroom access for earlycare center $50K AHC digitization equipment $20K University-School partnership

Amount distributed to APs: Number of faculty members who received senior raises: $114,480 / 260 = $440.30 per year $114,480 260 Land-Grant Rank
