Motion for Approval of Compensation Committee Resolution to Raise Faculty Salaries College of Charleston

Motion for Approval of Compensation Committee Resolution to Raise Faculty Salaries College of Charleston faculty salaries will meet or exceed the mean salaries of the CUPA-HR salary peers institutionally and at each rank. The College will make every effort to achieve this goal by September, 2018. The Compensation Committee, in cooperation with all relevant administrative offices, will assess the progress being made in its annual report each spring to the Senate.

Rationale • College of Charleston faculty salaries have ranked below those of most CUPA-HR

Rationale • College of Charleston faculty salaries have ranked below those of most CUPA-HR peers at almost every cell (combination of rank and discipline) for at least the past five years. When cost of living is factored in, our salaried are even lower. We also rank at the bottom of our future Colonial Athletic Association peers and in the lower half of our in-state peers. • Included in the College of Charleston’s Strategic Plan is the strategy to “develop and retain a highly qualified and diverse faculty and staff”, and the first tactic aimed at achieving this goal is to “improve salaries for faculty and staff to nationally competitive levels. ” Our motion is fully in line with the Strategic Plan. • President Benson’s letter to the faculty announcing the College’s move to the Colonial Athletic Association refers to the academic benefits of aligning our school with outstanding, nationally recognized institutions and the collaboration and resource sharing that will ensue. Raising our faculty salaries will solidify the equality of our status with these peer institutions.
