RE: 2022-23 Thresholds for Faculty Salaries

Dear Colleagues:

The 2022-23 thresholds for campus approval of faculty salaries are effective retroactive to September 1, 2022. The new thresholds for faculty salaries that require approval by the UC Provost and Executive Vice President – Academic Affairs (UC Provost) have been adjusted as follows:

Faculty Ladder Ranks Scale                                                                                    Threshold

Faculty Ladder Ranks Scale – Academic Year                                                            $378,700

Faculty Ladder Ranks Scale – Fiscal Year                                                                  $439,900

Faculty Ladder Ranks Scale – Bus/Engr/Econ – Academic Year                                   $415,400

Faculty Ladder Ranks Scale – Bus/Engr/Econ – Fiscal Year                                         $481,900

Above-threshold faculty salaries that result from new faculty appointments, retention actions, and faculty merit increases greater than 10 percent require approval by the UC Provost.

The Chancellor has authority to approve salaries above the thresholds in cases involving faculty merit increases of 10 percent or less. For faculty with administrative duties (department chairs, associate deans, directors, etc.) or for those who participate in the Negotiated Salary Trial Program (NSTP), compensation subject to the above thresholds includes administrative salary and/or professorial base salary (including above and off-scale salary), NSTP component, administrative stipends, summer differentials, and administrative 1/9 or 1/12 payments. Please see the Guidelines for Above-Threshold Salary Approval for further information.

Requests for approval of salaries that exceed the thresholds must be processed through the Academic Personnel Office. If you anticipate any actions that may require the UC Provost’s approval, please contact the Academic Personnel Office as early as possible. Questions may be directed to apo@ucsc.edu.
