Thanks to all faculty and staff who participated in the Campus Climate Survey.  Results of the survey will be reviewed by the Strategic Planning Group, Diversity Leadership Team, and other groups as appropriate to determine any actions needed to improve campus climate.

2013-14 Faculty and Academic Staff Salary Study

The 2013-14 Faculty and Academic Staff Salary Study is now available on the Information Portal.  The annual salary studies are just one example of the numerous actions UW-Stout has taken to address faculty and staff salary issues over the past two decades.  The current study's purpose is multi-fold and involves the following:

  • Examine salaries at Stout by using internal salary models
  • Provide national comparison of Stout salaries by using CUPA-HR surveys
  • Determine if gender, race/ethnicity, individual, and departmental inequities exists
  • Determine market equity
  • Highlight emerging issues

Supplemental Compensation Program

The Chancellor has approved the recommendations from the Supplemental Compensation Program Funding Options Committee and a $500,000 base-funded supplemental compensation program will be implemented on July 1, 2014.  Additional information can be found online (intranet log-in required).

ETS Proficiency Profile

 This month ARC will be administering the ETS Proficiency Profile to a small sample of seniors in classes in all four colleges. About 200 incoming freshmen take the same test in Fall semester. Results of these assessments help UW-Stout leaders gauge how students are performing in four core skill areas: critical thinking, reading, writing and mathematics.
