193.0 VII-4.00- INTERIM UNIVERSITY SYSTEM POLICY ON COMPENSATION FOR FACULTY
  AND ADMINISTRATIVE PERSONNEL
 
 
 
  (Approved by the Board of Regents, April 5, 1989)
 
  I.   INTRODUCTION
 
  A.   This interim policy describes the general criteria and
       procedures that will be used to determine the compensation
       of faculty members and administrative personnel at all
       constituent institutions of the University of Maryland
       System for the 1989-90 academic year.
 
       B. Definitions:
 
          1.     "Chief executive officer" refers to the Chancellor
                 (with respect to the University of Maryland System
                 Administration), the president of a constituent
                 institution, the director of a principal center
                 (Center for Environmental and Estuarine Studies,
                 and the Maryland Biotechnology Institute), and the
                 Vice Chancellor for Agricultural Affairs for the
                 Agricultural Experiment Station and the
                 Cooperative Extension Service; and a "constituent
                 institution" is used inclusively to refer to any
                 institution or other unit headed by a chief
                 executive officer.  For the purpose of this
                 interim policy, the University of Maryland System
                 Administration is deemed to be a constituent
                 institution headed by the Chancellor.
 
          2.     "Administrative personnel" refers to unclassified
                 professional employees, including administrative
                 officers, librarians, and library technicians,
                 appointed under the policies and procedures of the
                 former Board of Trustees of State Universities and
                 Colleges; associate staff employees appointed
                 under the Personnel Policies and Rules for
                 Associate Staff of the University of Maryland; and
                 academic administrators appointed under the
                 policies and procedures of the former Board of
                 Regents of the University of Maryland.
 
          3.     An individual's "salary" refers to that
                 individual's annual salary (under either a 12-
                 month, 9.5-month, or 10-month contract for the
                 1989-90 academic year).
 
          4.     A "Board of Trustees institution" refers to a
                 constituent institution that, prior to July 1,
                 1988, was under the jurisdiction of the Board of
                 Trustees of State Universities and Colleges.
 
          5.     A "Board of Regents institution" refers to a
                 constituent institution that is not a Board of
                 Trustees institution.
 
   II. INTERIM POLICY ON COMPENSATION FOR FACULTY AND
       ADMINISTRATIVE PERSONNEL
 
       A. General compensation policy.
 
          It is the objective of the University of Maryland System
          to provide compensation for faculty and administrative
          staff at levels sufficient to attract and retain (1)
          nationally and internationally prominent faculty members,
          and (2) administrative personnel with the qualifications
          necessary to maintain a high level of excellence in
          education.
 
       B. Compensation in FY 1990
 
          Procedures and criteria for determining the compensation
          of faculty members and administrative personnel are
          contained in current policies adopted by the former Board
          of Regents of the University of Maryland and the former
          Board of Trustees of State Universities and Colleges.1/
 
  _________________________________
       1/ These policies are:
 
          --     BOR III-14.00 (faculty at Board of Regents
                 institutions);
 
          --     BOR III-14.10 (associate staff at Board of Regents
                 institutions);

                 (administrative officers at Board of Trustees
                 institutions). 
          These policies shall govern compensation determinations
          for the 1989-90 academic year, subject, however, to the
          modifications contained in this interim policy.  To the
          extent that this interim policy is inconsistent with any
          of the provisions in the current policies of the former
          Board of Regents or former Board of Trustees, this
          interim policy shall be controlling, and inconsistent
          provisions in current policies shall be deemed superceded
          by this interim policy.

                 constituent institution is hereby authorized to
                 fix salaries for fiscal year 1990 for all faculty
                 and administrative personnel who are employed at
                 that constituent institution.
 
          (2)    Individual salary determinations shall be made in
                 accordance with the applicable policies of the
                 former Board of Regents and Board of Trustees and
                 this interim policy, and any general standards,
                 procedures, and timetables that the Chancellor may
                 establish pursuant to Paragraph G, below.
 
          (3)    Except as provided in subparagraph (5) of this

                 salary that exceeds the maximum allowable salary
                 increase or is outside the appropriate salary
                 range, then the chief executive officer may
                 recommend an exception.  The Chancellor shall act
                 upon such recommendations in accordance with such
                 standards, procedures, and timetables as the
                 Chancellor shall establish.
 
       G. Delegation to the Chancellor.
 
          Within the parameters established in the applicable
          policies of the former Board of Regents and Board of
          Trustees and this interim policy, the Chancellor shall be
          responsible for establishing general standards,
          procedures, and timetables for the allocation and
          determination of compensation for faculty and
          administrative personnel for the 1990 Fiscal Year.
 
       H. Maintenance of other existing compensation policies.
 
          Pending the Board's approval of a final policy on
          compensation for faculty and administrative staff, the
          compensation policies of the former University of
          Maryland Board of Regents and the former Board of
          Trustees of State Universities and Colleges as such
          policies existed prior to July 1, 1988, shall continue in
          effect, except that the Chancellor shall exercise, with
          regard to compensation criteria and ranges, the authority
          accorded the former President of the University of
          Maryland and the former Executive Director of the Board
          of Trustees of State Universities and Colleges.
 
       I. Compensation of the chief executive officers.
 
          Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions, the Board shall
          establish separately a policy for compensation of chief
          executive officers.
