Provost discusses summer pay for part-time faculty

Dear Students:

You may have heard or read about uneasiness regarding changes in how the University compensates part-time faculty members who teach low-enrollment summer classes.

After hearing of concerns and looking into the matter, I have learned that the current situation resulted in part from some miscommunication that created expectations for compensation according to past practices. I have worked with the deans to identify those part-time faculty members who were affected and have authorized the payment of those individuals at the previously agreed-upon rate for Summer Session I. The deans will meet with the affected faculty members this week.

In the days to come, I will continue to work with the deans to resolve this issue in a manner that best meets the needs of our students and part-time faculty for the long term. I will share that decision with everyone within a two-week timeframe.

Please be assured that everyone at the University is concerned above all with our students meeting their educational goals.

Sincerely,

Beth Stroble
Senior Vice President, Provost and Chief Operating Officer
