Policy Statement: 

Merit is awarded by the dean for teaching, scholarship, service, funded research and other, as defined below per calendar year. The basis for merit assessment should be each faculty member’s workload which is negotiated with the dean. Under normal circumstances, faculty receive merit pay based on up to 30 points per year. Faculty who earn more than 30 points are eligible for exceptional merit in those years when it becomes available. The policy includes two sections which address the assessment of merit for tenure-track faculty and research faculty with distinctions relevant to their roles within the School.
