A vote to increase eligible faculty salary by 4 percent across the board was made in the April 13 Board of Trustees (BOT) meeting, as the United Faculty of Florida and the BOT reached a consensus in a collective bargaining agreement.

The agreement also defined substantial revisions of faculty performance evaluations in renaming the five rating categories of university performance criteria. There are four sources of information that are used in order to come up with the five rating categories. The four sources of information used for faculty evaluations include a self-evaluation, classroom observations, peer assessment and university-mandated student evaluations.

Faculty members with “below satisfactory” evaluation ratings will not be eligible for a raise. No significant raises have been made available to faculty since at least 2007, according to President John Delaney.
