Study analyzes Southeast’s salaries, suggests many employees receive raises Consulting company recommends 251 of 978 Southeast employees salaries to be raised ANDREA GILS ONLINE MANAGING EDITOR

A฀study฀carried฀out฀by฀an฀external฀ consulting฀company฀hired฀by฀the฀ administration฀of฀Southeast฀Missouri฀ State฀University฀showed฀that฀many฀ faculty,฀staff฀and฀clerical,฀technical฀and฀ service฀council฀employees฀at฀Southeast฀ are,฀on฀average,฀paid฀less฀than฀ employees฀at฀other฀selected,฀comparable฀universities. The฀company฀provided฀recommendations฀and฀ways฀to฀implement฀them฀ to฀close฀the฀gap฀and฀allow฀Southeast฀to฀ hire฀and฀retain฀top฀quality฀professionals฀while฀still฀remaining฀competitive฀ in฀the฀market. J.W.฀Terrill,฀the฀company฀hired฀by฀ Southeast,฀recommended฀that฀the฀ salaries฀of฀251฀of฀Southeast’s฀978฀ employees฀be฀raised,฀although฀Kathy฀ Mangels,฀the฀vice฀president฀of฀finance฀ and฀administration฀at฀Southeast,฀said฀ more฀or฀fewer฀employees฀may฀receive฀a฀ salary฀adjustment฀because฀not฀all฀of฀the฀ recommendations฀may฀be฀adopted฀or฀ they฀may฀be฀modified. The฀Budget฀Review฀Committee฀set฀ aside฀some฀funding฀to฀increase฀ employee฀salaries฀in฀spring฀for฀the฀ fiscal฀year฀2014฀budget฀that฀started฀July฀ 1.฀The฀goal฀is฀to฀implement฀ adjustments฀in฀January. “That’s฀why฀there฀is฀funding฀in฀place฀ to฀implement฀in฀January,”฀Mangels฀ said.฀“It฀was฀a฀decision฀of฀the฀group,฀

collectively,฀that฀that฀money฀was฀very฀ important,฀that฀we฀look฀at฀salaries฀and฀ that฀some฀of฀our฀funding฀be฀set฀aside฀to฀ address฀it,฀so฀we฀won’t฀require฀any฀new฀ funding฀for฀this฀fiscal฀year.” Mangels฀added฀that฀the฀money฀the฀ committee฀set฀aside฀in฀spring฀may฀not฀ initially฀fund฀all฀of฀the฀recommendations,฀and฀if฀that฀is฀the฀case,฀some฀may฀ be฀phased฀in฀later. “Until฀we฀all฀decide฀on฀the฀recommendations฀and฀how฀we฀want฀to฀ implement฀them,฀we฀can’t฀say฀what฀the฀ final฀dollar฀[amount]฀is,”฀Mangels฀said.

“Until we all decide on the recommendations and how we want to implement them, we can’t say what the final dollar [amount] is.” Kathy Mangels Mangels฀said฀that฀as฀part฀of฀the฀ university’s฀compensation฀philosophy,฀ the฀administration฀wanted฀to฀look฀at฀ how฀much฀faculty฀and฀staff฀currently฀ are฀paid฀in฀relation฀to฀the฀market.฀The฀ aim฀of฀the฀study฀was฀to฀know฀what฀ Southeast฀needs฀to฀offer฀in฀order฀to฀ recruit฀and฀retain฀the฀quality฀of฀people฀ that฀it฀wants฀and฀find฀out฀ways฀to฀make฀ sure฀that฀Southeast฀remains฀competitive฀in฀wages฀within฀the฀market฀in฀the฀ future. Director฀of฀Human฀Resources฀Jim฀ Cook฀said฀the฀university฀has฀done฀two฀ internal฀assessments฀in฀the฀past฀13฀ years. “We฀wanted฀to฀get฀a฀consultant฀that฀ has฀the฀years฀of฀experience฀in฀human฀

resource฀and฀in฀compensation฀to฀help฀ us฀out,”฀Mangels฀said.฀“We฀want฀to฀ make฀sure฀that฀we฀are฀getting฀the฀best฀ data฀that฀is฀out฀there.” JWT฀sampled฀18฀universities฀in฀the฀ region฀and฀calculated฀the฀median฀ salaries฀at฀those฀universities฀to฀ compare฀Southeast’s฀salaries.฀The฀ entire฀Southeast฀faculty฀body฀and฀a฀ majority฀of฀staff฀members฀were฀also฀ provided฀feedback. “We฀are฀pleased฀that฀there฀has฀been฀ good฀participation฀in฀this฀process,”฀ Mangels฀said. The฀administration฀gave฀each฀ employee฀group฀that฀has฀councils฀or฀ committees฀the฀ability฀to฀decide฀how฀ they฀wanted฀to฀collect฀the฀feedback฀ from฀the฀employees.฀Mangels฀said฀ faculty฀held฀open฀forums฀and฀carried฀ out฀anonymous฀surveys฀while฀staff฀and฀ CTS฀shared฀comments฀through฀emails฀ to฀their฀supervisors฀and฀anonymous฀ surveys. JWT฀listed฀several฀concerns฀that฀ each฀employee฀group฀expressed฀in฀its฀ report. The฀faculty฀senate฀and฀administrative฀council฀said฀that฀there฀have฀been฀ several฀years฀of฀no฀pay฀increases฀ resulting฀in฀wage฀compression฀and฀that฀ family฀healthcare฀benefits฀are฀expensive.฀The฀faculty฀senate฀also฀said฀that฀it฀ is฀difficult฀to฀retain฀chairpersons฀ because฀of฀the฀low฀pay,฀among฀other฀ concerns. The฀professional฀and฀administrative฀ council฀also฀addressed฀pay฀compression฀and฀little฀flexibility฀in฀starting฀pay,฀ which฀has฀resulted฀in฀loss฀of฀candidates.฀It฀said฀that฀job฀duties฀increase฀ without฀reevaluation฀of฀the฀position฀ and฀that฀the฀performance฀management฀system฀does฀not฀differentiate฀top฀ performers,฀among฀other฀comments.

This฀step฀is฀converting฀residence฀halls฀from฀ a฀mixed฀majors฀setting฀to฀unified฀floors฀that฀ feature฀learning฀communities. “The฀learning฀community฀styled฀floors฀ are฀very฀unique,”฀New฀Hall฀director฀Allie฀Wisker฀said.฀“Students฀of฀the฀same฀general฀area฀ of฀study฀live฀on฀the฀same฀floor฀and฀are฀encouraged฀to฀work฀with฀each฀other฀for฀academics.฀ Most฀of฀them฀are฀underclassmen,฀but฀we฀do฀ have฀a฀few฀juniors฀and฀seniors,฀too,฀which฀ really฀helps฀younger฀students฀out฀with฀difficult฀work.” Wisker฀said฀there฀are฀three฀floors฀currently฀ using฀the฀learning฀community฀style.฀Education฀majors฀live฀on฀the฀first฀floor,฀business฀ majors฀on฀half฀of฀the฀second฀floor฀and฀science฀ majors฀on฀half฀of฀the฀third฀floor.

The฀multi-purpose฀room,฀set฀up฀much฀like฀ a฀meeting฀room,฀is฀equipped฀with฀everything฀ needed฀for฀the฀classroom฀experience฀including฀a฀computer,฀projector฀and฀whiteboard.฀

The฀room฀also฀is฀set฀up฀to฀enable฀discussion฀ by฀placing฀the฀tables฀in฀a฀U-shaped฀formation,฀encouraging฀the฀education฀majors฀to฀ get฀to฀know฀each฀other฀more฀as฀well฀as฀giving฀ them฀a฀chance฀to฀work฀with฀one฀another. “It’s฀a฀lot฀easier฀for฀me฀to฀help฀them฀out฀ with฀their฀academics฀since฀I’m฀in฀the฀same฀ major฀area฀as฀them,”฀Sarah฀Gibble,฀first฀floor฀ RA฀and฀elementary฀education฀major,฀said.฀ “A฀lot฀are฀new฀freshmen฀or฀transfer฀students.฀ When฀they฀come฀to฀me฀with฀questions฀I฀can฀ usually฀help฀them฀answer฀it,฀even฀though฀we฀ all฀have฀different฀focuses฀within฀the฀education฀field.” One฀goal฀of฀learning฀communities฀is฀to฀rid฀ students฀of฀discouraging฀feelings฀many฀may฀ have฀about฀communicating฀with฀faculty. Not฀only฀is฀this฀being฀done฀through฀the฀ UI100฀classes฀that฀are฀taught฀in฀the฀residence฀ hall,฀but฀also฀by฀RAs฀holding฀learning฀programs฀with฀faculty฀and฀student฀leaders฀to฀ speak฀about฀each฀student’s฀specific฀area฀of฀ learning.฀These฀group฀learning฀programs฀may฀ be฀done฀in฀a฀lounge฀area฀or฀in฀a฀study฀room. “I’ve฀been฀walking฀around฀the฀floors฀before฀ and฀have฀seen฀students฀using฀it฀to฀teach฀ others฀or฀work฀out฀their฀own฀homework฀problems฀on฀there,”฀Wisker฀said.฀“They฀seem฀to฀ be฀putting฀it฀to฀good฀use฀and฀are฀enjoying฀the฀ quiet,฀separate฀room฀to฀do฀school฀work.” Although฀New฀Hall฀only฀has฀been฀in฀use฀for฀ a฀few฀months฀now,฀the฀feedback฀is฀positive฀ about฀both฀learning฀and฀leisure฀for฀students฀ as฀they฀get฀to฀know฀each฀other฀and฀grow฀in฀ their฀fields฀of฀study.

Some฀may฀think฀domestic฀violence฀ just฀means฀being฀physically฀abused.฀ However,฀domestic฀violence฀includes฀ anything฀from฀name-calling฀to฀being฀ stalked. According฀to฀Dr.฀Victor฀Wilburn,฀associate฀professor฀of฀child฀development฀ and฀the฀program฀director฀for฀the฀VICTORY฀program฀at฀Southeast฀Missouri฀ State฀University,฀domestic฀violence฀isn’t฀ limited฀to฀married฀couples,฀and฀anybody฀can฀become฀a฀victim.฀VICTORY฀ is฀a฀program฀that฀promotes฀awareness฀ about฀dating฀and฀domestic฀violence,฀ sexual฀assault฀and฀stalking. Wilburn฀said฀that฀one฀of฀the฀biggest฀ signs฀for฀someone฀in฀an฀abusive฀relationship฀is฀isolation.฀Although฀he฀said฀ that฀there฀was฀some฀expectation฀of฀isolation฀in฀a฀new฀relationship,฀if฀the฀person฀was฀known฀to฀be฀outgoing฀and฀then฀ becomes฀completely฀isolated฀from฀their฀ friends,฀it฀is฀a฀big฀warning฀sign. Although฀physical฀abuse฀is฀a฀much฀ easier฀to฀spot฀than฀emotional฀or฀sexual,฀ for฀those฀in฀a฀possible฀abusive฀relationship,฀there฀are฀warning฀signs฀to฀look฀ for.฀Possessiveness,฀blaming,฀belittling฀ and฀isolating฀a฀partner฀from฀friends฀and฀ family฀are฀some฀signs฀to฀take฀note฀of฀if฀a฀ person฀thinks฀he฀or฀she฀is฀in฀an฀abusive฀ relationship,฀according฀to฀domesticviolence.org. Wilburn฀and฀Allison฀Leonard,฀the฀ director฀of฀operations฀for฀the฀Safe฀

House฀for฀Women,฀both฀acknowledged฀that฀women฀are฀not฀the฀only฀possible฀victims. “It’s฀not฀random฀acts฀of฀violence,”฀ Leonard฀said,฀in฀reference฀to฀people฀ being฀abused. Wilburn฀also฀noted฀that฀the฀statistics฀ for฀college฀athletes฀and฀fraternity฀members฀are฀shockingly฀lower฀than฀what฀is฀ covered฀in฀national฀news. “Eighty฀to฀85฀percent฀of฀attacks฀are฀by฀ someone฀that฀the฀victim฀knows,”฀Wilburn฀said.฀“One฀in฀four฀people฀have฀ been฀a฀victim฀of฀domestic฀violence.” Leonard฀and฀Wilburn฀agree฀that฀the฀ actual฀numbers฀of฀people฀reporting฀an฀ attack฀is฀very฀low. Leonard฀said฀that฀she฀believes฀this฀is฀ because฀of฀a฀social฀stigma฀that฀is฀attached฀to฀reporting฀domestic฀violence.฀

“Eighty to 85 percent of attacks are by someone that the victim knows. One in four people have been a victim of domestic violence.” Dr. Victor Wilburn She฀also฀said฀the฀stigma฀could฀come฀ depending฀on฀who฀a฀person’s฀attacker฀is.฀For฀example,฀if฀an฀attacker฀is฀a฀ well-known฀and฀a฀liked฀member฀of฀the฀ community,฀the฀victim฀is฀more฀likely฀to฀ be฀quiet฀about฀what฀has฀happened฀to฀

them. “We฀get฀a฀lot฀of฀hotline฀calls฀from฀students฀who฀don’t฀necessarily฀want฀to฀ report฀it,”฀Leonard฀said. According฀to฀Leonard,฀the฀Safe฀House฀ receives฀phone฀calls฀from฀students฀not฀ wanting฀to฀report฀their฀abuse฀but฀who฀ want฀to฀see฀if฀there’s฀another฀way฀to฀ break฀their฀cycle฀of฀abuse.฀She฀said฀that฀ although฀the฀Safe฀House฀does฀get฀phone฀ calls฀from฀men฀who฀are฀in฀an฀abusive฀ situation,฀they฀do฀not฀have฀a฀Safe฀House฀ designated฀for฀them.฀But฀the฀Safe฀House฀ does฀work฀with฀the฀men฀involved฀to฀try฀ and฀find฀some฀sort฀of฀placement฀where฀ they฀can฀be฀safe. Leonard฀and฀Wilburn฀agree฀that฀ something฀like฀domestic฀violence฀can฀ be฀hard฀to฀talk฀about฀because฀it’s฀such฀ a฀“behind฀closed฀doors”฀situation.฀Leonard฀even฀noted฀that฀some฀international฀students฀at฀Southeast฀will฀refuse฀ to฀report฀it฀since฀they฀are฀told฀to฀not฀ talk฀about฀such฀things฀in฀their฀home฀ countries. Although฀the฀crime฀statistics฀for฀the฀ Southeast฀campus฀are฀relatively฀low฀for฀ domestic฀abuse฀and฀sexual฀assault,฀Wilburn฀said฀that฀there฀have฀been฀three฀ reported฀cases฀this฀semester.

Dr. Kevin Hampton begins position as music department chair HANNAH BOBEEN ARROW REPORTER

Dr.฀Kevin฀Hampton฀is฀a฀recent฀addition฀to฀ Southeast’s฀Department฀of฀Music,฀and฀a฀new฀ face฀on฀campus.฀He฀recently฀took฀the฀role฀as฀ the฀chair฀of฀the฀music฀department. Hampton฀has฀previously฀been฀a฀professor฀of฀music฀in฀Savannnah,฀Ga.,฀and฀specializes฀in฀applied฀piano,฀which฀he฀said฀is฀his฀true฀ joy฀in฀life. The฀pianist฀enthusiastically฀provided฀ insight฀on฀his฀role,฀along฀with฀his฀influence฀ in฀music฀and฀his฀excitement฀to฀start฀the฀next฀ chapter฀of฀his฀professional฀career฀as฀an฀administrator฀at฀Southeast.

those฀years฀ago.฀The฀position฀for฀it฀was฀the฀ perfect฀pair฀I฀had฀been฀looking฀for,฀and฀that’s฀ what฀got฀me฀on฀board฀to฀apply฀for฀it.

Q: Were you working in Missouri previously when you applied

Missouri฀for฀family฀events฀ever฀since฀I฀was฀a฀ little฀kid,฀so฀when฀getting฀the฀position฀here฀I฀ was฀like,฀“Oh,฀wow,฀Cape.฀That฀will฀feel฀kind฀ of฀like฀home.”฀I฀do฀love฀it฀though,฀this฀is฀a฀nice฀ little฀city฀now,฀and฀I’m฀surprised฀to฀see฀how฀ much฀it’s฀expanded฀since฀I’ve฀been฀away.

Q: What is your back-

Q: Are those pieces still some of your favorites because they started you out in music? A:฀I฀think฀those฀will฀always฀be฀special฀for฀me฀ no฀matter฀what฀since฀they฀did฀have฀an฀early฀ influence฀on฀me.฀Since฀then,฀I฀don’t฀want฀to฀ say฀my฀tastes฀have฀moved฀on,฀but฀more฀so฀ expanded฀so฀greatly. There’s฀really฀so฀much฀great฀music฀out฀ there,฀it’s฀really,฀really฀hard฀to฀have฀a฀favorite.฀ It’s฀hard฀for฀me฀to฀say฀if฀I฀have฀even฀a฀few฀favorite฀pieces,฀but฀yes,฀those฀are฀definitely฀still฀ special฀to฀me฀and฀my฀music฀now.

Q: What exactly is the role you play in being the new music department chair? A:฀Basically,฀I฀would฀say฀my฀role฀is฀not฀so฀ much฀as฀directing,฀but฀facilitating฀by฀working฀ with฀my฀colleagues฀to฀find฀solutions฀to฀challenges฀we฀may฀face,฀whether฀it’s฀curricular,฀ performance฀or฀anything฀else฀it฀may฀be.฀It’s฀ not฀so฀much฀me฀telling฀them฀what฀needs฀to฀ be฀done,฀it’s฀getting฀input,฀trying฀to฀find฀consensus฀and฀then฀see฀what฀solutions฀will฀be฀ best฀for฀our฀students.

Q: Is there anything upcoming in the music department you are especially looking forward to?

“It’s always wonderful getting to work with students at different levels and experiences and that are so creative.” Dr. Kevin Hampton Not฀only฀do฀I฀work฀by฀overseeing฀ everything฀that’s฀being฀done,฀but฀I฀am฀involved฀with฀it฀and฀know฀what’s฀going฀on,฀too.

Q: How did you find out about the position here at Southeast? A:฀This฀was฀done฀by฀a฀national฀search,฀and฀I฀ saw฀an฀advertisement฀about฀the฀position฀last฀ spring.฀It฀was฀a฀combination฀that฀appealed฀to฀ me฀back฀then,฀focusing฀on฀wanting฀to฀move฀ towards฀administration. I฀was฀at฀that฀point฀in฀my฀career฀as฀a฀professor฀of฀music฀where฀I฀thought,฀“This฀is฀an฀interesting฀plan,”฀because฀it฀was฀the฀administrative฀side฀along฀with฀applied฀piano฀side,฀which฀ is฀my฀true฀love.฀It’s฀why฀I฀went฀into฀music฀all฀

very฀influential฀on฀me฀as฀a฀kid,฀one฀was฀ Dukas’฀“The฀Sorcerer’s฀Apprentice,”฀and฀the฀ other฀was฀“Peter฀and฀the฀Wolf”฀by฀Prokovief.฀ So฀by฀listening฀to฀those฀recording฀and฀beginning฀to฀really฀hear฀and฀understand฀the฀piano฀ I฀was฀immediately฀drawn฀to฀it.฀Everything฀ just฀progressed฀from฀there฀to฀where฀I฀am฀here฀ today.

for the position? A:฀No,฀I’ve฀spent฀the฀last฀18฀years฀as฀a฀professor฀of฀music฀at฀Armstrong฀Atlantic฀State฀University฀in฀Savannah,฀Ga.,฀but฀I฀am฀a฀native฀ Missourian. This฀position฀here฀is฀almost฀like฀coming฀ home.฀My฀family฀is฀originally฀from฀the฀ bootheel฀area.฀Although฀I฀am฀from฀northern฀Missouri,฀that’s฀where฀I฀grew฀up.฀I’ve฀ been฀coming฀back฀and฀forth฀from฀southeast฀

ground in music, more specifically, piano? A:฀That฀started฀when฀I฀was฀a฀child,฀and฀I฀ believe฀I฀was฀8฀when฀I฀had฀my฀first฀piano฀lesson.฀It฀was฀something฀that฀I฀just฀absolutely฀ loved.฀I฀remember฀my฀mother฀would฀bring฀ home฀recordings฀from฀the฀library฀that฀I฀would฀ listen฀to฀and฀attempt฀to฀play. There฀were฀two฀in฀particular฀that฀were฀

A:฀Can฀I฀honestly฀say฀the฀entire฀upcoming฀ year?฀One฀of฀the฀things฀that฀really฀appealed฀ to฀me฀about฀the฀program฀here฀is฀the฀Holland฀ School฀of฀Visual฀and฀Performing฀Arts. It’s฀very฀unique฀to฀have฀a฀campus฀that฀has฀ entire฀separate฀section฀dedicated฀to฀the฀fine฀ arts,฀so฀the฀synergy฀of฀all฀those฀performance฀ opportunities฀in฀one฀place฀is฀very฀appealing฀ to฀me. Then฀I฀look฀at฀just฀the฀scope฀of฀experience฀and฀expertise฀we฀have฀here฀within฀the฀ music฀faculty.฀We฀have฀composers,฀we฀have฀ active฀performers฀in฀so฀many฀different฀areas,฀ we฀have฀musicology฀represented,฀we฀have฀ everything฀from฀early฀music฀to฀modern฀electronic.฀It฀just฀seemed฀to฀me฀like฀a฀wonderful฀ place฀to฀be฀for฀creativity฀and฀stimulating฀for฀a฀ music฀educator. Most฀of฀all฀I฀am฀excited฀for฀the฀students฀ that฀are฀here฀for฀music฀education,฀whether฀it฀ is฀to฀be฀educators฀themselves฀one฀day฀or฀to฀ go฀into฀professional฀performance.฀It’s฀always฀ a฀wonderful฀getting฀to฀work฀with฀students฀at฀ different฀levels฀and฀experiences฀and฀that฀are฀ so฀creative.

Cook฀said฀that฀the฀lack฀of฀transparency฀ is฀probably฀because฀staff฀and฀CTS฀do฀not฀ know฀the฀process฀of฀recommending฀employees฀for฀the฀merit฀pay฀awards,฀even฀though฀ their฀supervisors฀are฀the฀ones฀who฀start฀the฀ process. “What฀we฀realized฀is฀that฀we฀still฀have฀individuals฀who฀are฀lagging฀and฀that,฀on฀an฀individual฀basis,฀we฀need฀to฀bring฀their฀pay฀up฀to฀be฀ more฀in฀line฀with฀market,”฀Mangels฀said.฀“Our฀ CTS฀has฀actually฀showed฀that฀they฀are฀the฀ lowest฀overall฀compared฀to฀markets.฀That฀is฀a฀ group฀that฀we’ve฀been฀working฀over฀years฀to฀ make฀sure฀that฀there฀has฀been฀wage฀increases,฀ how฀we฀dealt฀with฀those฀folks฀and฀I฀think฀we฀ got฀some฀good฀recommendations฀and฀dialogue฀with฀the฀employee฀groups฀on฀how฀we฀ can฀look฀at฀those฀people฀who฀are฀still฀lagging฀ behind฀and฀through฀these฀recommendations,฀ bring฀them฀up฀as฀part฀of฀this฀study.” JWT฀found฀that฀the฀total฀average฀of฀the฀ faculty฀at฀Southeast฀are฀paid฀almost฀the฀same฀ as฀the฀market’s฀median,฀but฀that฀number฀is฀ skewed฀in฀part฀by฀instructors฀making฀108.7฀ percent฀of฀the฀median.฀Staff฀is฀paid฀two฀percent฀less฀than฀the฀market฀median฀and฀CTS฀are฀ paid฀almost฀eight฀percent฀less฀than฀the฀market฀median. To฀address฀these฀differences,฀JWT฀recommended฀bringing฀faculty฀who฀meet฀certain฀ requirements฀to฀at฀least฀90฀percent฀of฀market฀ median฀while฀ensuring฀that฀Southeast฀meets฀ the฀market฀median฀in฀the฀entire฀staff฀average. It฀also฀recommended฀bringing฀eligible฀ staff฀to฀at฀least฀85฀percent฀of฀market฀median฀ and฀considering฀capping฀individual฀salary฀ adjustments฀for฀this฀group.฀Another฀recommendation฀is฀to฀set฀the฀living฀wage฀for฀regular฀ full-time฀staff฀at฀at฀least฀$9.50฀per฀hour. “When฀we฀are฀talking฀about฀90฀[percent฀of฀ market฀pay],฀that’s฀where฀we฀would฀be฀hiring฀ at,”฀Cook฀said.

“The goal is that we would implement the first set of recommendations in January.” Kathy Mangels But฀demands฀of฀the฀market฀may฀change฀ those฀percentages. “Depending฀at฀different฀times,฀certain฀disciplines฀you฀are฀going฀have฀to฀pay฀more฀than฀ 90฀[percent]฀because฀they฀are฀in฀demand฀…฀ like฀cyber฀security,฀faculty฀in฀those฀areas฀are฀in฀ demand,฀so฀that฀may฀be฀an฀area฀that฀you฀are฀ going฀to฀have฀to฀pay฀more฀than฀you฀would฀in฀ another฀discipline,”฀Mangels฀said. Mangels฀said฀the฀focus฀is฀to฀find฀out฀where฀ Southeast฀needs฀to฀be฀in฀the฀market฀in฀order฀ to฀be฀competitive. “The฀way฀we฀wanted฀to฀look฀at฀this฀is฀that฀ we฀didn’t฀want฀dollars฀to฀drive฀our฀decisions฀ because฀it’s฀very฀important฀that฀we฀all฀look฀ at฀the฀philosophy฀first฀and฀determine฀where฀ do฀we฀need฀to฀be,”฀Mangels฀said.฀“If฀we฀start฀ faculty฀at฀around฀90฀percent฀of฀the฀market,฀does฀that฀make฀us฀competitive?฀Because฀ that’s฀our฀goal.฀We฀need฀to฀be฀competitive฀to฀ recruit฀those฀top฀faculty฀for฀the฀classroom.฀ So฀we฀wanted฀to฀decide฀that฀first฀and฀not฀let฀ dollars฀drive฀that.฀The฀same฀way฀with฀staff.” While฀instructors฀in฀all฀colleges฀are฀paid฀ more฀than฀the฀market’s฀median,฀professors฀

are฀paid฀only฀93.65฀percent฀of฀the฀market’s฀ median.฀Associate฀professors฀are฀paid฀just฀ above฀the฀market฀median฀on฀average฀and฀ assistant฀professors฀almost฀two฀percent฀ under. “When฀you฀think฀about฀the฀professors,฀they฀ have฀more฀years฀of฀service,฀which฀means฀they฀ may฀have฀started฀several฀years฀ago฀when฀the฀ market฀was฀so฀much฀lower฀than฀it฀is฀now,”฀ Mangels฀said. The฀highest฀paid฀group฀among฀all฀faculty฀ employee฀groups฀at฀Southeast฀is฀the฀faculty฀at฀ the฀Kent฀Library.฀Professors฀with฀post-professorial฀merit฀and฀instructors฀are฀paid฀between฀ seven฀and฀28฀percent฀more฀than฀the฀market฀ median.

Mangels฀explained฀that฀there฀are฀different฀ sets฀of฀recommendations฀and฀implementations฀for฀faculty฀and฀staff฀because฀compensation฀works฀differently฀for฀these฀groups. Faculty฀have฀the฀opportunities฀to฀be฀promoted,฀accompanied฀by฀salary฀increases,฀ while฀staff฀members฀working฀for฀10฀years฀at฀ the฀university฀have฀no฀set฀salary฀increase฀that฀ comes฀along฀with฀their฀seniority. “If฀you฀look฀at฀a฀faculty฀member฀you฀can฀ start฀off฀as฀an฀instructor฀and฀then฀get฀a฀tenured฀track฀job฀as฀an฀assistant฀professor฀and฀ work฀your฀way฀up฀doing฀the฀same฀job,฀teaching฀the฀same฀courses,฀all฀the฀way฀up฀to฀a฀ full฀professor฀then฀later฀be฀post-professorial,฀so฀they฀can฀still฀do฀research฀and฀service฀ and฀things฀like฀that฀that฀earns฀them฀a฀higher฀salary,”฀Cook฀said.฀“On฀the฀staff฀side฀we฀ don’t฀have฀career฀tracking฀…฀so฀what฀happens฀ is฀that฀on฀the฀staff฀side฀we฀end฀up฀with฀more฀ compression,฀meaning฀more฀people฀making฀ the฀same,฀doing฀similar฀jobs฀and฀making฀the฀ same฀amount฀of฀money.” Even฀though฀Southeast฀does฀not฀have฀a฀ standardized฀career฀track฀for฀staff,฀Mangels฀ said฀staff฀can฀apply฀to฀higher-level฀positions฀ with฀higher฀pay,฀but฀there฀is฀not฀a฀guaranteed฀ opportunity฀for฀a฀salary฀increase฀every฀five฀ years฀like฀faculty฀has. After฀professors฀reach฀the฀highest฀level฀at฀ Southeast,฀they฀can฀apply฀for฀post-professorial฀merit฀every฀five฀years. Mangels฀said฀that฀eligible฀professors฀need฀ to฀meet฀certain฀requirements฀in฀order฀to฀ receive฀that฀merit,฀which฀includes฀an฀additional฀salary. “What฀that฀probably฀did฀years฀ago฀for฀us฀ is฀that฀it฀kept฀those฀professors฀here฀rather฀ than฀going฀somewhere฀else฀to฀try฀get฀a฀bigger฀ salary,”฀Cook฀said. Another฀recommendation฀provided฀ by฀JWT฀was฀to฀provide฀start-up฀packages฀ for฀newly-hired฀faculty฀when฀needed฀for฀ recruitment. Mangels฀said฀that฀Southeast฀does฀not฀typically฀provide฀start-up฀package฀option,฀but฀ Cook฀said฀in฀some฀cases฀Southeast฀provides฀ moving฀expenses. Cook฀said฀that฀having฀start-up฀packages฀ has฀the฀advantage฀that฀it฀is฀a฀start-up฀cost,฀ which฀means฀the฀university฀has฀to฀pay฀it฀once,฀ making฀it฀a฀cheaper฀tool฀that฀could฀be฀used฀ for฀recruitment. The฀recommendations฀will฀be฀brought฀to฀ the฀Board฀of฀Regents฀for฀discussion฀at฀its฀Oct.฀ 24฀meeting. “The฀goal฀is฀that฀we฀would฀implement฀the฀ first฀set฀of฀recommendations฀in฀January,฀so฀it฀ would฀result฀in฀mid-year฀salary฀increase฀for฀ eligible฀individuals,”฀Mangels฀said.

Zane Riley I฀briely฀saw฀Afleck฀shooting฀a฀scene฀on฀Spanish฀St.฀last฀weekend,฀but฀hordes฀of฀people฀ swarmed฀his฀vehicle฀asking���for฀autographs.

Amy Lynn Swartzbaugh I฀have฀yet฀to฀see฀any฀and฀they฀are฀ilming฀right฀outside฀my฀boyfriend’s฀house.฀But฀ I’ve฀also฀been฀trying฀to฀stay฀away฀from฀the฀ craziness฀of฀the฀ilming฀downtown.

JC Reeves I’m฀pretty฀sure฀I฀saw฀Rosemund฀Pike,฀and฀ she฀ran฀away฀from฀me฀because฀I฀had฀a฀camera.฀I฀assume฀she฀thought฀I฀was฀paparazzi.

Watch฀your฀spending฀when฀traveling. This฀summer฀I฀went฀to฀England,฀and฀I฀ ended฀up฀going฀a฀little฀“spending฀crazy.”฀ I฀wanted฀to฀spend฀money฀on฀all฀of฀the฀ attractions฀and฀buy฀clothes฀so฀I฀could฀say฀“I฀ bought฀this฀in฀England.”฀ But฀about฀two฀weeks฀into฀my฀vacation,฀I฀ realized฀that฀I฀had฀overdrawn฀in฀my฀account฀ by฀almost฀$500฀and฀I฀still฀had฀one฀week฀left฀ of฀vacation.฀When฀planning฀any฀type฀of฀weekend฀getaway฀or฀whatever,฀make฀sure฀you฀ budget฀yourself฀accordingly.฀Also,฀if฀you฀go฀ out฀of฀the฀country,฀make฀sure฀you฀check฀the฀ exchange฀rates฀because฀30฀pounds฀does฀not฀ mean฀$30,฀it฀means฀like฀$60.฀

Don’t฀be฀a฀personal฀ATM.฀Even฀though฀it’s฀ a฀sincere฀gesture฀to฀loan฀a฀friend฀a฀spare฀ dollar฀for฀a฀soda,฀that฀can฀pave฀the฀way฀to฀ a฀destructive฀path฀concerning฀money. One฀week฀could฀only฀call฀for฀a฀soda,฀ but฀before฀you฀realize฀it฀you’ve฀shoveled฀out฀the฀money฀for฀their฀rent.฀Be฀ sure฀that฀friends฀are฀genuine฀before฀ agreeing฀to฀loan฀money฀to฀them.฀ Otherwise฀you’ll฀be฀stuck฀in฀a฀hole฀ where฀your฀money฀continues฀to฀fall฀to฀ the฀bottom.฀That฀leaves฀you฀with฀two฀ choices:฀dig฀to฀reach฀your฀lost฀funds฀or฀ throw฀all฀the฀excess฀dirt฀on฀the฀friendship.

Save฀any฀extra฀money฀you฀get.฀I฀know฀this฀ sounds฀simple,฀but฀it฀really฀does฀make฀ a฀difference.฀It฀would฀be฀really฀easy฀to฀ notice฀you฀have฀an฀extra฀$50฀in฀your฀bank฀ account฀and฀head฀to฀TJ฀Maxx฀and฀blow฀ it฀on฀a฀brand฀new฀pair฀of฀shoes.฀However,฀saving฀that฀$50฀will฀benefit฀you฀more฀ in฀the฀long฀run฀than฀those฀$50฀pair฀of฀ shoes฀will,฀no฀matter฀how฀cute฀they฀are. For฀most฀this฀seems฀easy฀to฀accomplish,฀ but฀it’s฀so฀much฀harder฀than฀you’d฀think.฀ My฀first฀advice฀would฀be฀to฀set฀up฀an฀ actual฀savings฀account฀that฀you฀can’t฀ access฀very฀easily.฀Then฀put฀a฀little฀bit฀of฀ money฀in฀the฀account฀every฀month.฀Even฀ if฀it’s฀only฀$10฀it฀will฀add฀up฀over฀time฀and฀ when฀that฀unexpected฀expense฀comes฀ long฀you฀will฀have฀the฀money฀to฀cover฀it฀ without฀giving฀up฀the฀necessities฀like฀food฀that฀you฀need฀to฀stay฀alive.฀

I฀know฀this฀goes฀without฀saying,฀but฀if฀ you฀spend฀all฀the฀money฀you฀make,฀you฀ will฀always฀be฀broke.฀While฀suring฀the฀ internet฀I฀found฀that฀78฀percent฀of฀NFL฀ football฀players฀ile฀bankruptcy฀within฀ive฀ years฀of฀retirement.฀I฀found฀that฀absurd฀ considering฀the฀fact฀that฀most฀professional฀athletes฀make฀more฀in฀one฀season฀ than฀many฀will฀make฀in฀their฀entire฀lives,฀ but฀it฀serves฀as฀a฀prime฀example฀of฀how฀ living฀lucratively฀can฀be฀harmful,฀even฀ when฀you฀make฀a฀lot฀of฀money.฀Recently฀ I’ve฀been฀fortunate฀enough฀to฀have฀made฀ a฀little฀more฀money฀than฀usual,฀but฀I’ve฀ noticed฀that฀I’ve฀spent฀more฀money฀as฀ a฀result.฀It’s฀a฀habit฀I฀think฀many฀of฀us฀ have฀naturally,฀but฀we฀should฀learn฀from฀ our฀friends฀in฀the฀National฀Football฀ League฀and฀learn฀to฀invest฀the฀money฀so฀it฀lasts.

This฀is฀a฀great฀trick฀for฀all฀the฀freespirited฀spenders฀out฀there! Before฀traveling฀or฀even฀before฀going฀ out,฀visit฀an฀ATM฀and฀retrieve฀the฀ amount฀of฀cash฀you’re฀willing฀to฀ spend฀for฀that฀trip฀or฀evening.฀This฀is฀ a฀great฀way฀to฀keep฀impulse฀purchases฀ from฀piling฀on฀top฀of฀one฀another. Personally,฀I’m฀not฀the฀best฀at฀keeping฀tabs฀on฀my฀checking฀account,฀and฀ I’m฀also฀not฀the฀type฀to฀save฀receipts.฀ By฀retrieving฀money฀prior฀to฀spending,฀it’s฀easier฀to฀keep฀track฀of฀how฀ much฀money฀I฀have฀left.฀Also,฀there’s฀ never฀a฀surprise฀about฀how฀much฀is฀left฀ in฀my฀account฀after฀the฀excursion. But฀don’t฀forget฀to฀take฀your฀debit฀or฀ credit฀card฀in฀case฀of฀an฀emergency!

College฀students฀generally฀do฀a฀substandard฀job฀of฀managing฀their฀money.฀For฀ some฀of฀us,฀it฀is฀because฀we฀are฀just฀poor฀ and฀managing฀what฀little฀money฀we฀have฀is฀ dificult.฀For฀others,฀we฀make฀bad฀inancial฀ decisions.฀I฀can฀relate฀to฀each฀problem.฀ My฀two฀main฀tips฀for฀you฀are฀these:฀track฀ your฀personal฀spending฀and฀think฀about฀ how฀much฀you฀would฀have฀to฀work฀when฀ deciding฀to฀buy฀something.฀I฀use฀an฀app฀ called฀Mint฀to฀help฀me฀track฀my฀spending.฀It฀really฀opens฀your฀eyes฀to฀see฀what฀ areas฀you฀are฀not฀handling฀well.฀The฀second฀ tip฀really฀enlightens฀you฀if฀you฀work฀an฀ hourly฀job.฀Say฀you’re฀thinking฀of฀buying฀a฀ jacket฀for฀$60.฀You฀may฀reason฀it’s฀on฀sale,฀ but฀if฀you฀make฀minimum฀wage,฀that฀is฀9฀ hours฀of฀work—before฀taxes.฀Using฀that฀strategy฀will฀help฀you฀make฀better฀decisions.
