Why are administrators that return to the faculty after completion of their term continuing to be paid their administrative stipend? These administrators are no longer performing administrative services. Is it true that these “excess” payments amount to over $100,000 annually (the union says it more like $400,000)? At the completion of their professorships, faculty are not permitted to keep their stipends. The argument that individuals would not take on administrative roles unless they were allowed to keep their salary stipends is not credible (according to the union and a recent Folio Weekly article no other university in Florida has such a provision in their contract).
Response from the Floor by Provost Chally
That has been a current policy that has been in effect for a large number of years.
