Printable Version of This Policy
Faculty Administrator: – A Faculty Administrator is any faculty member or administrative officer who spends some or all of his time performing administrative duties.
Administrative Component: – An Administrative Component is the portion of a Faculty Administrator’s pay that is treated as compensation for his/her administrative duties. For Faculty Administrators holding a written contract of employment, the Administrative Component is specified within.
By the terms of their contracts and applicable policies (Board of Regents Policy Manual 22.214.171.124 – Administrative Officers http://www.usg.edu/policymanual/section3/policy/3.2 faculties/), all Faculty Administrators at Georgia Health Sciences University hold their administrative office, and any concurrent ex-officio positions at GHSU and it affiliated organizations, at the pleasure of the President or the President’s designee.
This policy is intended to address the method of calculating compensation for Faculty Administrators who are part of the Corps of Instruction and hold written contracts for employment in the event their administrative office is terminated.
Except for the Corps of Instruction faculty members with a written contract, a Faculty Administrator’s employment shall end immediately when they no longer hold their administrative office.
Should a Faculty Administrator, who is also a member of the Corps of Instruction with a written contract (Board of Regents Policy Manual 126.96.36.199 – Corps of Instruction http://www.usg.edu/policymanual/section3/policy/3.2 faculties/), no longer hold their administrative office, then the portion of their salary identified as the “Administrative Component” in their faculty contract shall be removed immediately. The former Faculty Administrator’s salary will not be reduced below the benchmark for his or her position consistent with the standards of the university. The exact benchmark salary and standards of this university for any given faculty will be determined by the academic chain of command, with the Provost making all financial decisions in the event of a dispute. The President shall make the final determination of the benchmark for the Provost. The determination of the benchmark may be made at any time, including after the removal of the administrator.
This policy has no effect on whether a former Faculty Administrator will be offered a subsequent contract, or what the duties, allocation of effort, and compensation would be in a subsequent contract. Those decisions will be governed by the existing policies of this institution and the University System of Georgia on tenure and faculty employment.
The responsibilities each party has in connection with this policy, are:
|Provost||Makes the final determination about the salary benchmark to be used for former Faculty Administrators.|
