  3. To assemble data and reports on faculty salaries following a three year cycle.
  4. To track problems related to faculty salary compression, inversion, retention/competitiveness, and any actions taken by the Provost to address such issues within a three year cycle.
  5. To make recommendations for implementing adjustments to faculty salaries within available funds.
  6. To make recommendations on minimum floor salaries to be used at each rank.
  7. To ensure that faculty salary information is being collected.
  8. To request each year of the Provost’s Budget Office the following faculty salary data and related information: current average salaries and ranges by rank, gender, years of service, and other relevant variables for each college and the library; comparison data of average salaries at all ranks for peer institutions; actions taken in the previous year to address faculty salary compression, inversion, retention/competitiveness.
  9. To provide RPAC with an annual report on faculty salaries at the University.
