The School of Business administration is an AACSB accredited business school. Our faculty members are responsible for delivering high quality instruction and student advising, high quality research, and responsible and committed service. Associated with this balanced perspective on faculty contributions, our norm is to evaluate faculty using 40% teaching, 40% research and 20% service and full-time lecturers on 60% teaching and 40% service.
The consequence of this practice is that the assigned workload for teaching, research and service will vary from faculty member to faculty member.
Thus, it is imperative that any system of allocating performance based salary increases take into account the school's overall objectives and the unique contributions of individual faculty. The following protocol for determining and allocating performance based salary increases is designed to support that objective.
Overall, the approach is based upon a comparative evaluation of performance across peers within an area of responsibility and a weighting of each area of contribution in the determination of the total increase.
(1) Divide the total performance pool into three categories – teaching, research, and service. Percentages for each category will be determined by averaging the respective faculty workload percentages.
(2) Within each category, conduct an evaluation of faculty as follows:
Course Preps Equivalents
SCH and Course Evaluation Percentiles
30% weight for SCH and 30% for Evals
|1||1 to 1.5||50-59|
|2||>1.5 to 2.5||60-69|
|3||>2.5 to 3.5||70-79|
|4||>3.5 to 4.5||80-89|
(3) Determine individual faculty member total performance dollars by summing across the three categories – teaching, research, and service for each individual faculty member.
Examples include: Participating in admitted student visit days, meeting with board of advisors over dinner, or participating in a journal’s annual editorial board meeting
Examples include: Larger role in Honor’s Day (e.g., active in choosing award winners, writing a bio, attending the Honor’s Day event, and presenting one or more awards), presenting a research paper at the BSAD brown bag research series, serving on an expert panel discussion for a University-wide event, or reviewing a paper submission for a scholarly conference.
Examples include: Organizing a speaker to come to campus, taking a student club on a road trip, or reviewing a more complex and time-consuming paper submitted to a journal.
Examples include: Advising a school or university club.
Examples include: Serving on ad hoc or standing committees at the School or University level, or serving on a committee or board of a professional association.
Examples include: Serving on a particularly demanding ad hoc or standing committee, or serving as a committee chair in a manner that requires more time than for regular committee members.
Examples include: Serving on the Faculty Senate Professional Standards Committee. Faculty members who believe they deserve more than 5 points for this category of service activity will need to provide sufficient justification and evidence for the request.
