Policy 5G: Application of Teaching Excellence Award to Base Salary

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the President's Office shall modify the President's Teaching Scholars Program as follows:

(1) Every Presidential Teaching Scholar, including those already so designated, will receive an increment to his/her base salary. In assessing the long-term fiscal effects of such increments, the President's Office will attempt to achieve parity between the group of Scholars already designated and the groups yet to be named.

(2) During the first two years of a faculty member's designation as a Presidential Teaching Scholar, his/her campus shall reserve funds to be available to the Scholar for self-selected projects relating to teaching excellence. Funds shall also be available to Scholars already designated.

(3) The President's Office shall investigate the feasibility of implementing a similar increment for the Distinguished Professors.
