The merit increase process is conducted as a centralized university activity. Merit is assigned based upon performance as reflect in one’s annual review, etc.
Specific non-tenure track appointments (i.e., Multi-term Lecturers, University Lecturers, Senior Lecturers, and Lecturer/APA's) may be eligible for a limited term appointment that extends beyond a single academic year. All initial appointments and renewals must be approved by the Office of the Provost. A hiring unit may decide to increase the rate of pay upon the renewal (if eligible).
In the event an esteemed faculty member were to resign in lieu of another offer from an external entity, the unit may initiate conversations with the appropriate Dean, Vice Chancellor for Research, and the Office of the Provost to determine if a counter offer package might be supported upon the availability of resources. Counter offer requests must have approval by the unit hierarchy, Human Resources Management, and the Office of the Provost.
Please contact your Dean's Office, Office of the Provost or Human Resources Management for more information.
