Administrative Senate holds May meeting

May 16, 2008  

A straw poll of Administrative Senate members Thursday showed unanimous support for allowing individual departments to determine the percentage of pay raises resulting from this year's raise pool.

Past senate president Wendy Merb-Brown, who represents the senate on the Budget Planning Council, asked senators whether they would prefer all administrators receive an across-the-board 3 percent raise for 2008-09 or leave the raise pool distribution rate for each employee to the discretion of individual departments. She said departments could award each administrator a pay increase between 1.5 percent and 7 percent if approved.

Merb-Brown said she would communicate the senate's recommendation to the BPC.

On a separate topic, Chair Brenda Noftz expressed her desire for an examination of the university's administrator pay structure, which she said hasn't been updated in more 30 years. Noftz plans to appoint an ad hoc committee to analyze administrative employee compensation information, with the results being used to compile a report on the subject. The report would look at pay grade, promotions, gender, planning unit, service time at the university and in current position, and full-time versus part-time status.

Also Thursday, Elections Committee Chair Doug Grammer reported that 164 administrators had voted so far in this year's senate election, which ends Tuesday. To vote, administrators can visit http://adminsenate.admsrv.ohio.edu/adminsenate. Several district senator positions are still vacant. For more information about openings or the election, e-mail Grammer at grammer@ohio.edu.

Administrative Senate meets next at noon Thursday, June 19, in Baker University Center Ballroom A.
