Performance pay in higher education?
My new colleague — and soon-to-be-EWA member — Brian McVicar is working on a story about a contract signed with faculty today at Grand Rapids Community College.
Among the interesting features of the deal is a five-year freeze of the current salary schedule and eliminating annual step increases.
Plus, future pay increases will be based on demonstrated exemplary performance.
I know we’ve had much talk at the K-12 level about performance-based evaluations, but has anyone heard of such a thing in higher education?
