1 Slide Number: Faculty Range Salary Schedule Recommendation March 20, 2012 ALAMO COLLEGES UMGHR HARNESSING THE POWER OF HUMAN CAPITAL

2 Slide Number: INTRODUCTION An Alamo Colleges “Advisory Committee” was established to issue recommendations to the Chancellor’s Executive Committee on possible ways to reorganize and rebalance the faculty salary schedule within existing resources for full-time faculty The Advisory Committee was composed of faculty and administrators across the District and was tasked to review Alamo’ 2008-2009 Faculty Compensation Study conducted by UM Global HR A final report and proposed faculty salary schedule was submitted to the Chancellor and Executive Committee As part of the Alamo Colleges’ Faculty Compensation Study, UM Global HR was asked to review the committee’s proposed salary schedule This report is the result of the review and presentation of a “Range” salary schedule which incorporates the major elements of the Advisory Committee’s salary schedule report, while addressing cost and equity issues inherent in Alamo Colleges current “Step” salary schedule 1 March 20, 2012

3 Slide Number: On December 2 nd 2011,UM Global HR met with the Advisory Committee and recommended a change from the current Step Salary Schedule to a Range Salary Schedule with a slightly lower initial placement rate. –Currently four of the Big Eight colleges use a step salary schedule (Alamo, Austin, El Paso, and Houston), and four use a Range Salary Schedule (Dallas, Lone Star, San Jacinto, and Tarrant). After reviewing the Step Schedule and the Range Schedule, it was agreed that UM Global HR, Alamo HR, and a faculty representative work together to adjust the Range Schedule to take into account salary compression, provide for a transparent reporting system, and to report back. –Salary compression is when current faculty earn the same or less than new faculty. The revised Range Salary Schedule was reported to the Advisory Committee by the faculty representative and Alamo Colleges Human Resources in early March. 2 BACKGROUND March 20, 2012

11 Slide Number: To improve Alamo Colleges’ faculty salary competitiveness in each “Salary Class” by achieving “Threeness” among Alamo’s eight peer community colleges 10 Note: The “Threeness criterion is based on the Advisory Committee’s goal of placing Alamo Colleges Faculty salaries among the top three of entry level salaries and average salaries compared to peer institutions.

Faculty can move within a range through annual increases, market increases, internal equity adjustment, or promotion in Rank. Faculty move to higher classes by achievement of required credit hours and/or higher degree. Range Spread Per Class = 96.4% Midpoint to Midpoint Progression = 2% to 9% The 96.4% Range Spread represents threeness among base 8 colleges. Max Midpoint Min BA Max Midpoint Min MA Max Midpoint Min MA + 12 Max Midpoint Min MA + 24 Max Midpoint Min MA + 36 Max Midpoint Min MA + 48 Max Midpoint Min PhD = Range Spread = Midpoint to Midpoint Progression
