These documents will guide implementation of these new programs for the 2015-2016 year.
The Chancellor's Faculty Fellows program and the Performance Pay Incentive program were authorized by vote of the Board of Trustees on September 1, 2015, and relevant Board policy revisions were shared on the DCCFA Advance Blog on September 2, 2015.
District Talent Central and the Faculty Council collaborated to formulate implementation details, and to draft and edit the following documents that will launch both the Chancellors Faulty Fellows and Performance Pay Incentive programs. To ensure the integrity of this cooperative process, and to honor the request of Talent Central, and given that the Faculty Council is elected and empowered by the Faculty Association to represent faculty in the shared governance of the DCCCD, the Faculty Council unanimously agreed not to share widely the details of the discussions as they occurred.
UPDATE 12/7/2015: This revised description of the Chancellor's Faculty Fellows program was released Dec. 7, 2015, and includes additional clarifications regarding candidates being expected to demonstrate their ability to teach in the discipline. The document explains the process by which Faculty Fellows - who may have one year or less of teaching experience - will be sought, hired, and developed professionally in the DCCCD. The Chancellor's Faculty Fellows program succeeds, but does not replicate, the Visiting Scholar program.
This description of the pilot program for faculty Performance Pay explains the process by which faculty may apply to be considered for Performance Pay. If a faculty member is approved, Performance Pay results in an increase to the base salary for the faculty member. Completing the
Performance Pay application form is the first step in applying for Performance Pay, followed by a conversation with the dean. UPDATE 1/13/2016 This link is an electronic version of the Performance Pay application form.
Given that both of these programs are in their pilot year, District Talent Central and the Faculty Council will continuously assess these programs and will recommend refinements for subsequent years. Given that the Faculty Council was involved in the process by which these documents were drafted, questions can be directed to your Faculty Association president.
