Annual Merit Exercise

The annual Salary Increase Exercise process establishes salary increases for faculty and administrative professional staff. Each college and vice president is given a set percentage of dollars to distribute amongst their employees based on merit and evaluation of performance for the past year. The other elements of the exercise include promotions from the promotion and tenure process, as well as equity and special increases which are used to address other salary adjustments that go beyond the scope of the merit component. This exercise is administered by the Office of Budgets and the Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs.

Off-Cycle Salary Increase Process

Outside of the annual merit exercise process, the off-cycle salary adjustment process should be followed to change an employee’s salary.
