April 12, 2010

III.
COMMUNICATION WITH THE PRESIDENT.

A. Comments by the President.
President Powers was unable to attend the meeting. Provost Steve Leslie indicated there was one formal question that had been submitted, and President Powers would provide his response at the May 10 Council meeting. Professor William Beckner (mathematics) asked if a decision had been made by the central administration regarding faculty and staff raises for the coming academic year. Provost Leslie said merit salary increases were still under discussion, and the Faculty Budget Advisory Committee would be consulted. Following a comment provided by Executive Vice Provost Steve Monti, Provost Leslie clarified that funding for merit increases from central administrative sources would not be available for the coming year. Provost Leslie added, “whatever decision is made in terms of a merit salary increase for next fall will be based upon reallocations from internal money.”
