Chairs hold 12-month appointments, accruing sick leave and vacation time in accordance with all fiscal (12-month) administrative appointments. The normal and expected arrangement for compensation is that the chair’s salary will be the 12-month equivalent of her/his 9-month faculty salary base. For more information, please refer to UNT Policy 06.009 (Tenured Administrators Returning to Full-time Academic Status).
Chairs will receive a salary augmentation based on the number of full-time faculty in each department. Each August, the Provost Office will verify faculty head count so that the augmentation can be adjusted if needed each September. The chair augmentation is only applied to the chair’s salary during the period of service.
Augmentation* Amounts for AY 2017-2018 are listed below:
Departments with 2-10 full-faculty - $400/month or $4,800/year
Departments with 11-20 full-time faculty - $500/month or $6,000/year
Departments with 21-30 full-time faculty - $600/month or $7,200/year
Departments with 31+full-time faculty - $700/month or $8,400/year
*Augmentation levels will be reviewed annually by the Provost’s Office for suitability.
Chairs are on duty whenever the university is open and must use vacation time to cover non-business absences. Upon return to a regular faculty appointment, vacation leave balances will be frozen. For more information, refer to UNT Policy 05.055 (Vacation Leave).
