The School is committed to supporting its faculty who rely on outside funding for salary support. Faculty, from time to time, may have unavoidable gaps in salary funding; several mechanisms have been instituted to help mitigate these instances:
- The policy on Research Funding and Revenue Sharing is intended to incentivize research as well as provide all ranks and tracks of faculty with an opportunity to build their own resource pools for supporting their research programs.
- The school has created a central pool for addressing salary shortfalls for faculty. This pool, administered herein, is intended to address short-term funding needs. Persistent or structural funding gaps are beyond the scope of this program and should be discussed with the faculty member’s center director and department chair in conjunction with the Dean’s office.
