4.1.12 Salaries

A good salary policy reflects basic canons of equity and fairness as well as a set of considerations that govern the institution's mission. The institution may properly recognize in its salary policies several factors, in addition to merit, that may result in salary differentials. Among these, the more important are differences in field, differences in function, and differences in market conditions. (American Council on Education, Equal Employment Opportunity Task Force Report)

Initial salaries are influenced by the considerations listed above. Annual salary increases are awarded subject to the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement negotiated with the faculty union, the Delaware Chapter of the American Association of University Professors. (Rev. 7/1/75)
