Compensation, Benefits, and Faculty Development

Return to Office of the Secretary of the Faculty

Tenured and tenure-track faculty members are compensated for their teaching, advising, scholarship, and service.

Full-time lecturers are compensated for their teaching, advising, and service. Because full-time lecturers are not responsible for scholarship, their normal teaching loads are expected to be the equivalent of six courses per academic year.

Part-time lecturers are compensated per course. Although part-time lecturers are expected to be available for posted office hours, they do not have formal advisees. Part-time faculty members who teach three courses or more over both semesters within an academic year are eligible for benefits.

Full-time and part-time benefits-eligible faculty members are compensated over a twelve-month period for their work during the nine-month academic year.
