Research intensive semester for pre-tenure faculty

11/30/2018

Dear colleague,

As you may know, our most recent contract calls for us to bargain with the administration of each college/school to establish policies that assure that pre-tenure faculty have access to a Research Intensive Semester, or a reduction in workload, to help us build our scholarly profiles (see MOU 8 of the contract). This is good because it gives us a chance to push for a strong set of policies together.

We will be receiving our raises!

11/30/18

Dear Colleague,

The UMass System Office informed our campus (and all UMass campuses) to disperse your raises—all of it—4% total on your base salary (from the 2% increase due July 1, 2017, and the additional 2% increase due July 1, 2018), and retroactive pay back to July 1, 2017.  You will be receiving this in your December 14 paycheck.
