 The Chancellor’s Cabinet approved the attached TWU Compensation Philosophy document at its meeting on December 16, 2013. This process leading to the TWU philosophy statement has been positive with the participation of many people and groups. The final philosophy statement was revised to include input from the open sessions and the Faculty Senate. It will be presented to the Board of Regents at the February 21, 2014 Board of Regents meeting. We are on target to complete the review of peer faculty and staff salaries early this spring semester with a goal of using the information gained to make salary recommendations for the FY2015 budget year. The Chancellor’s Cabinet wants to express appreciation to each of you for your interest and participation in this very important project. Special thanks is given to the compensation philosophy committee chaired by Dr. Stankey. The campus community will be kept informed as we continue to develop the TWU Compensation Plan.
