UC Santa Cruz 2022-23 Academic Salary Program

June 14, 2022

By Lori Kletzer, Campus Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor 



Dear Colleagues:

I am pleased to announce that the campus will implement a four percent general increase to policy-covered academic salary scales in 2022-23 for senate faculty and other policy-covered (non represented) academic personnel. The new scales are effective July 1, 2022 for non faculty academic titles, and October 1, 2022 for faculty and student titles. 

Senate faculty and related titles: Increases for senate faculty and related titles – Professor and Teaching Professor (LSOE), including Acting titles, Astronomer, and Adjunct Professor – will be effective October 1. Elements of the 2022-23 academic salary program for senate faculty, which will include a salary equity component, are still under consultation. The full program will be announced once finalized. 

Faculty administrators: Department chair and college provost stipends will increase 4% effective July 1. Other faculty administrators, including deans, may be considered for a merit increase in administrative salary or stipend of up to 4% based on meritorious performance.

Non-represented academics: Non-represented academic salaries — including academic coordinators, supervisory librarians and researchers, and UNEX continuing educators — will increase by 4% effective July 1, unless otherwise stipulated in appointment or retention agreements or program terms. For off-scale and above-scale appointees, the increase will be applied to the total annual salary rate. 

The 4% increase is approximate due to rounding. Increases will be reflected in the paycheck following the effective date. 

Negotiated compensation agreements for recalled retirees, by-agreement appointees, visitors, etc. are subject to the discretion of the hiring authority and will not be automatically increased. Salary increases for represented academic personnel are set by the terms of the collective bargaining agreements.
