2012-2013 Contract

Yesterday I got my contract for next year’s school year. I was a little worried I’d get bumped down to a 10 month contract from the 11 month that I currently have. This would be a decrease in pay of around $5,000. Because of how academic contracts work, while it would be a decrease in pay it wouldn’t be a decrease in my salary rate. Instead of getting $5,000 per month for 11 months I’d get $5,000 per month for 10 months. So less overall money but not a change in rate of pay. It’s weird and sometimes confusing, but I also have the opportunity to work in months that I’m off contract, so it kind of works.

ANYWAY, I was afraid that I’d get bumped down to a 10 month contract so I was VERY excited to see that I will be staying at an 11 month contract.

However, they are still not contributing to our retirement (we lost this benefit March 2011 and still haven’t gotten it back) and no one got any raises this year. Well, somehow this years contract was $900 more than last years. But I think this is based on promotion from a second year professor to a third, not a regular raise. Again, this faculty contract thing is weird.

The moral of the story is I was exceptionally pleased to see that, despite my fears, I won’t have a decrease in my salary next school year. Yay!

    It’s interesting how the cost of higher education has went up but it doesn’t seem to be filtering down to the educators. I wonder if its because enrollment is down because of the economy?

  3. That’s great news!
