Administrative Compensation


Recognizing the many and diverse responsibilities and considerable time involved in running a successful Master's program in the Arts and Sciences, the College will provide Master's Program Directors with compensation in the form of adjustment of teaching expectations (reassigned time) and/or stipends. 

Master's Programs in the College differ considerably with respect to student enrollments.  The total reassigned time for a Master's Program Director is based on student enrollment in the Master's program, averaged over the past four academic years (data posted on the Registrar’s website; Enrollment Statistics). Master's Program Directors will be compensated according to the following formula:

       Enrollments inMaster's Program         
(# of students per semester)

      Master's Program Director Reassigned Time     
(# of contact hours/yr)
6+ 1/9

Master's Program Directors may receive reassigned time for research/scholarship in addition to administrative reassigned time.  If the combined reassigned time for research and administrative responsibilities exceeds 12 contact hours, the Master's Program Director may either: 1) share the 6-credit reduction with a co-director, or 2) receive a $4000 stipend for every 3 contact hours of reassigned time in excess of 12 contact hours.   In any case, Master's Program Directors will teach a minimum of 12 contact hours per year.
