SENATE From the Chair
On Faculty SalariesTo Members of the Standing Faculty:
I would like to draw your attention to the thoughtful report of the Senate Committee on the Economic Status of the Faculty, which was published in the May 19/26, 1998, issue of Almanac. It contains important information about Penn's budgeting system, how faculty salaries compare to those at peer institutions, and variations in faculty salaries by rank, school, and years of service. It makes several important recommendations that the Committee expects to pursue this year.
You may obtain a hard copy of this report from Almanac by calling 898-5274, or from Carolyn Burdon, Executive Assistant to the Chair of the Faculty Senate, by calling 898-6942. It is also available at the Almanac website, http://www.upenn.edu/almanac/v44/n34/senrept.html.
