Faculty Salaries

FULL-TIME FACULTY
Variations in salary exist depending upon the academic qualifications and experience of a faculty member and the faculty member’s discipline.

PART-TIME FACULTY: TENURE-TRACK OR CONTINUING APPOINTMENT
The salary for a member of the faculty on a part-time tenure track or continuing appointment shall be the proportionate share of the appropriate salary for a full-time appointment.

PART-TIME FACULTY: ADJUNCT
Remuneration for adjunct faculty normally follows a schedule which is based on credentials, teaching load, and the number of years of service at Saint Mary’s College. 

INDIVIDUAL SALARY DETERMINATION
Faculty salaries are reviewed annually. The amount and timing of across-the-board adjustments is determined by the Board of Trustees as part of their budget deliberations. Adjustments related to promotion are made in the context of the President’s appointment to the new rank.

SALARY NOTIFICATION
During the first week of March each faculty member on a continuing appointment receives a letter from the Provost confirming rank, tenure, status, and salary for the coming academic year. The notification also includes a statement of inclusive dates of that academic year. 

PROMOTION INCREASES
It is the general policy of the College to grant special salary increases to faculty members upon their promotion. The President, in consultation with the Provost, sets the promotion amount.

CHAIR STIPEND
In addition to a reduction in teaching load, Department Chairs receive a stipend which is added to their salary.
