4.04 Salary of Individuals Holding Both Faculty and Administrative Appointments
The policy for establishing academic salary rates and administrative salary rates for persons holding both faculty and administrative appointments is set forth below. It applies to Executive Officers, Assistants to Executive Officers, Deans, Associate or Assistant Deans and Directors. It does not include Division Directors, who appear in the budget with nine-month and twelve-month rates.
The administrative rate for newly appointed administrators will be determined by the President. After the first year in an administrative position, the administrative salary will be based on the evaluation of the duties and responsibilities of the administrative position, and on the performance of the individual.
The academic salary rate (9-month rate) will be based on the individual's academic qualifications and will be determined by using the same criteria as are applicable in determining the salary rate of other faculty members.
The administrative salary rate (12-month rate) and the academic salary rate (9-month rate) shall not necessarily be related. The percent time appointment distribution between the administrative position and the faculty position will be determined by the President. The amount of annual payment will be determined by using the appropriate rate for each appointment. There will be no "12-month total" salary except as computed from the separate rates.
The appointment of a UTSA faculty member to any such administrative position may release funds to his/her academic unit, and may be used to employ a temporary faculty member. Only on the express written authority of the President can an additional permanent faculty member be appointed.
The salary attributable to the administrative position is lost when a faculty member leaves an administrative position.
Exceptions to the above policy may be authorized by the President under unusual circumstances.
