Towards an Optimal University Salary System.
Seastone, D. A.
This report is principally a study of various alternatives to the existing set of elements that constitutes the University of Calgary's salary system. The study is based primarily on personal interviews with academics and administrators at the University of Calgary and on a set of responses to letters sent to academics and administrators throughout Canada. The first section of the study deals with the general salary structure particularly as related to the relative income status of University of Calgary academic staff and the resultant social and economic status of the academics; market pressures and the problem of overlapping scales; the peculiarity of the faculty of medicine; flexibility as a means to greater efficiency in the salary system; flexibility via market supplements; flexibility via salary overlaps between ranks; and the question of should academic rank be abolished. Section 2 deals with the question of merit increments, section 3 discusses the length of the contract year, and section 4 analyzes the question of supplementary income. (HS)
