Correct the Uneven Distribution of Faculty's Summer Pay - BFAX-R-2-1201 - December 10, 2001
 

Note from the Office of the AVC for Faculty Affairs, December 2002:

"We have changed our way of paying faculty salaries so that faculty on summer grants don't get shortchanged the one week between the end of the summer and the beginning of the fall semester. Now that we're using contract instead of monthly pay, the contract feature will ensure the faculty member receives their full 3/9ths pay. The week gap won't be problematic because we'll simply calculate what their allowable 3/9ths compensation is, set it up as a contract, and the system will pay it out fully. So, while we can't change the dates of the summer calendar, as BFA had suggested, we have found another way by which to ensure full 3/9ths compensation."
