2025 Visionary Plan

As K-State's 2025 strategic plan comes to a close, our strategic planning efforts continue as Next-Gen K-State. See the latest updates on the Next-Gen K-State website.

Faculty Compensation

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 report below as well as the feedback received during the formal comment period.
