Approved: April 22, 1992

Nomenclature changes: July 16, 1997

Monitor: Vice President for Business Affairs


The University strives to pay salaries, subject to the availability of funds, which will enable the recruitment and retention of qualified civil service employees. The University administers a compensation system without regard to race, religion, color, national origin, ancestry, sex, marital status, veteran status, sexual orientation, age, or disability, and in accordance with the Statutes and Rules of the State Universities Civil Service System and the Regulations of the Board of Trustees. The University will strive to pay salaries that are competitive with other employers in the labor market for comparable jobs and that are equitable within the University.

Presidential approval is required for establishing and reclassifying Civil Service positions, for replacement of Civil Service staff, for initial salary level and for salary increases except for those increases mandated at the end of a probationary period. The Vice President for Business Affairs, in consultation with the Director of Human Resources, shall develop and periodically review and suggest modifications of the Salary Administration Plan and shall submit these modifications to the President for review and approval. The current Civil Service Salary Administration Plan is available in the Department of Human Resources.
