Recommendation made by Faculty Senate
President Schallenkamp made a brief visit at the end of the meeting and updated the Senate on state legislative action on the 5% state employee bonus and the 3% pay raises. For faculty the raise is based on performance (over the last 3 years), market (Oklahoma scale), and institutional priorities (probably outstanding performance over the last 3 years and those who at least achieve but are substantially below the market), not across the board as it is for other state employees.
Meeting adjourned 3:40 p.m.
Minutes recorded and respectfully submitted by Gina Gibson.
