After the FY 1994 review, the SRC will annually review new hires, faculty awarded terminal degrees since the previous annual review, and any other faculty not previously reviewed for possible equity adjustments, and will recommend appropriate placement based on the then current equity grid.

The SRC will complete a new analysis of the salaries of all faculty every four years in order to update and/or modify data and relevant criteria and recommend adjustments. Appeals from denials of adjustment shall be considered within the time frame established by the committee.
