Slight Change in Direct Pay Policy of the Continuing Education Center

Policy Memorandum No. 56

Recommended by the Commission on Faculty Affairs
Approved by University Council: January 7, 1985
Approved by the President: January 7, 1985
Effective: Immediately

The FACULTY HANDBOOK establishes (Section 2.11.3, Paragraph 4) a specific maximum daily payment rate for faculty participating in Continuing Education Center programs. Because of the changing value of the dollar, concern arose that the Handbook should not set specific maximum payment amounts but should provide only that the amount be reviewed periodically. To accommodate that concern, the University Council adopted the following Resolution, entitled Direct Pay Policy of Continuing Education Center:

WHEREAS, Section 2.11.3, paragraph 4 of the FACULTY HANDBOOK establishes a specific maximum daily payment rate for faculty participating in CEC programs,

AND WHEREAS, changes in the value of the dollar have reduced the real compensation represented by that specified maximum daily payment rate since the Handbook was adopted and can reasonably be expected to reduce that real compensation further in the future,

AND WHEREAS, the FACULTY HANDBOOK should establish more general procedures for determining the maximum daily compensation rate,

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the following text should be substituted in its entirety for Section 2.11.3, paragraph 4 of the FACULTY HANDBOOK:

Annually, the Provost shall set a maximum applicable daily payment rate. The Provost shall advise the Commission on Faculty Affairs of any changes in the maximum applicable daily payment rate. For a particular program, a daily payment rate not to exceed the maximum will be determined by agreement of the CEC programming officer and the participating faculty member, subject to the approval of the Director of the CEC. Such a negotiated rate may depend on the anticipated enrollment and the budgetary constraints of the program. A daily rate above the established maximum must be approved by the Director of the CEC, the dean of the faculty member's college, and the Provost.
