C. Report from Financial Advisory Committee on Faculty Salary Funding Incentive Plan
As was requested by Faculty Senate, the Financial Advisory Committee met this week to discuss the "Faculty Salary Funding Incentive Plan" Draft #9. Because the Graduate Council was also studying this document to make a recommendation, they were invited to a joint committee meeting.
Members of both committees recognized the motivation to identify new resource streams for the university, and discussed the likely impact of this proposal on UAF campus faculty. The committee was concerned that the plan seems to cap potential faculty benefit while the University's inflow continues to go up. The committee concluded that this "incentive" plan would apply only to a very small number of faculty who would qualify for extramural funding that could be used for salary (other than summer salary). Thus, this plan will likely have a minor effect as an incentive.
No recommendation from the committee was made. This report was communicated to the Provost.
