In accordance with the Financial Impact Memo sent to the University community on April 14, the University will have no merit increases, effective through the end of the next fiscal year (June 30, 2021). We recognize that in times of a salary freeze, compensation adjustments sometimes must be made to retain our best faculty, who are so crucial to fulfilling the University’s core missions of teaching, research, and patient care. This document is designed to provide guidance to schools regarding the process by which exceptions to the salary freeze may be considered by the provost.
To protect our community from the spread of the novel coronavirus, the University has had to make changes to customary policies and practices in faculty recruitment, research, promotion and tenure, and travel, among others. Read on for ongoing updates and changes.
