Adopted Proposals 

   

SENATE HOME PAGE

The following are proposals which were adopted by the 2004-2005 College Senate
( Amy Ma, President,  Catherine Felton, President-Elect)

1.  Tiger Tutor proposal

In order to address the need for teaching the CPCC community how to use the many programs and resources available on the CPCC website, it is the recommendation of the College Senate that a ‘Tiger Tutor’ icon be placed next to the links for each program or resource, which will link to a brief tutorial presentation (PowerPoint, MS-Producer, Flash, viewlet, or similar product) which illustrates how to sign up for, logon to or otherwise use the program or resource.

It is recommended that the development of these presentations be done by the Center for Teaching and Learning, IT Division faculty, and/or a funded group that is responsible for developing the training.  This training feature should become the standard for development of student and faculty tools for all future projects.

 

2.  Smartboard/Sympodium proposal
 

It is the recommendation of the College Senate that the Smartboard be part of the standard equipment in any smart classroom with seating for forty-four or fewer students and that the Sympodium be standard in any smart classroom with seating for forty-five or more students.

      3.  Faculty Salary Decompression Proposal

It is hereby the recommendation of the College Senate that the following formula be employed for decompressing all full-time CPCC Faculty salaries: 

Those faculty employed at CPCC for five or more years but less than ten years have their salaries adjusted to at least the 25th percentile of their salary grade as shown in the chart below (hereinafter “Faculty Pay Chart”), and 

Those faculty employed at CPCC for ten years but less than fifteen years have their salaries adjusted to at least the midpoint of their salary grade as shown in the Faculty Pay Chart, and  

Those faculty employed at CPCC for fifteen or more years have their salaries adjusted to at least the 75th percentile of their salary grade as shown in the Faculty Pay Chart. 

These adjustments shall not reduce anyone’s current salary, therefore those Faculty whose salaries exceed these adjustments will be considered exempt from this recommendation.

4.  Computer Skills Assessment Test Proposal

It is hereby the recommendation of the College Senate that CPCC institute a computer skills assessment test to be available to function as a placement test to ensure that students have the computer skills necessary to succeed in college. 

 5.  Professional Staff Salary Proposal

Whereas, Central Piedmont Community College has embarked upon an initiative to become a Learning College, it is the position of the College Senate that equal support should be made available to support the educational advancement of all members of our community. 

There is currently a discrepancy between the monetary reward provided to faculty and staff for completion of an advanced degree. As the benefits of having a well educated professional staff reach across organizational units and have a direct impact upon our efficacy in providing a learning environment for our students, it is recommended that professional staff receive the same ten percent (10%) educational advancement compensation as the faculty at the college.  A full-time professional staff employee will receive a salary increase upon completion of an approved, job-related program of study, culminating in the attainment of an advanced degree from an accredited institution.

To qualify for the increase, the employee must obtain certification from their supervising administrator(s) that the program is job-related, either prior to the beginning of the program of study or at the time of employment if the program of study is in progress at that time.  A copy of the certification must be filed in the employee’s personnel record. 

The monthly salary of a professional staff employee currently being paid at his/her current position will be increased by ten percent upon attaining an earned, job related associate’s, bachelor’s, master’s or doctoral degree from an accredited institution.   

Approved salary adjustments based on educational advancement will become effective on the following pay period after Human Resources receive official documentation.  In order that salary adjustments can be budgeted, it is the responsibility of the employee to inform the supervising administrators in writing at least three months prior to the anticipated completion date.  It also is the responsibility of the employee to ensure that the appropriate credentials have been submitted to Human Resources. 

 

6.  Amended Faculty Pay Decompression Proposal

The faculty appreciates the significant efforts made by CPCC to address faculty pay decompression and wish to ensure that the benefits of the effort be extended to faculty who have been full time instructors for more than nine years. 

 It is therefore hereby proposed that new categories be created and added to the categories adopted after Seigel, such that the salaries of faculty who have worked 9 to 12 years be brought to at least the 45th percentile, salaries of faculty who have worked 12 to 15 years be brought to at least the 60th percentile, salaries of faculty who have worked 15 to 20 years be brought to at least the 75th percentile and salaries of faculty who have worked more than 20 years be brought to at least the 90th percentile of the faculty annual salary ranges then in effect.

            7.  Classroom safety.

In order to secure the safety of faculty and students, it is the resolution of the College Senate that College Security should immediately remove a student from a classroom if so requested by an instructor.  The student will then be subject to section 7.00, paragraph III, in the Policies and Procedures Manual.
