This Policy Statement has undergone a complete overhaul to provide clarity and more specificity about the various types of additional compensation that may be permitted. The new title of the Policy reflects this broader scope: “Additional Compensation for Professional Services to the University.”
One of the major changes is that while the previous Policy limited all types of additional compensation to 3/9 of the salary base for 9-month faculty, the revised policy allows other types of incidental compensation and compensation for summer teaching, without specifying a limit. Instead, the process requires pre-approval and all one-time payments require a memo of justification for both the activity and the compensation amount for the activity. The Policy also sets forth the conditions required for 12-month staff to receive additional compensation.
A new appendix provides a quick reference guide indicating the types of additional compensation available based on employment category.
