Faculty Compensation Planning
Competitive compensation is essential for recruiting and retaining the faculty and staff we need now and in the future. Instituting multi-year compensation improvement plans with specific targeted goals and strategies is important to making progress.
In 2012, a Faculty Compensation Task Force proposed a plan to advance K-State 2025 goals for competitive faculty compensation. A three-year compensation improvement plan was put in place for FY2014 through FY2016 drawing on several elements of this plan. As a result, average faculty salaries across all ranks have risen but more progress needs to be made.
A new Faculty Compensation Task Force was appointed to review progress and recommend faculty compensation priorities for the next three-year plan - FY2017 through FY2019.
You are invited to review the Task Force recommendations and reports as well as the feedback received during the formal comment periods.
Competitive compensation is key to recruiting and retaining the talented and high performing, diverse workforce envisioned in K-State 2025. These reports are based on data reported by K-State in November of each year to the Oklahoma State University Faculty Salary Survey.
