Compensation for Overloads and Summer Employment: A Survey of Current Practice in Texas.
Hardy, James C.
A survey was sent to 58 chief academic officers to gain information about compensation for instructional overloads and summer employment at public and private Texas colleges and universities. Responses were received from 42 institutions. Only two indicated that their institutions did not have a uniform policy guiding summer compensation amounts. The senior-level institutions favored compensating summer instructional duties by using a formula based on a percentage of the faculty member's 9-month salary, with the percentage for the 9 senior public institutions varying from 8.3% per 3-hour course to 11.1%. Policies at the 13 private senior-level institutions were less homogeneous, and the compensation was more likely to be a specified amount regardless of the 9-month salary. The junior and community colleges compensated through stipends. These institutions generally based compensation on course size and/or course level. Six of the responding institutions anticipated a change in the method of compensating faculty for summer courses. A similar study was done on compensation for instructional overload. The study found that course stipends are the predominant instructional overload compensation method employed in Texas. As in the first study, six institutions anticipated future changes occurring in this area. (SLD)
