The DCCCD Board of Trustees approved the 2015-16 budget last evening (6-1 vote). The proposed changes that were presented to the Board in July for faculty compensation were approved. Here are the links to the budget, the policy pertaining to the Chancellors Faculty Fellows and the changes to faculty salary schedule placement approved by the Board.
This is one of the most significant improvements that we have seen in a number of years, although there were provisions that cause concern. Virtually all of the recommendations made by the Welfare and Benefits Committee last spring were approved but there is still a great deal of work to do.
We must have a compensation system that will allow us to attract and retain the best faculty. We have a commitment from Chancellor May that these efforts will continue and that conversation about compensation will resume in January.
