The University establishes minimum full-time monthly rates at which a unit pays faculty members. The salary floors apply to persons appointed into permanent positions as well as to those in temporary, visiting, acting, affiliate, or clinical positions. The appropriate salary is based on the candidate's training, experience, etc. and is determined at the time of the original appointment in negotiations between the unit Chair/Director and the Dean/Chancellor.
