Faculty Classification and Compensation Study - Final Implementation


In 2021, as an initiative within MGA’s Strategic Plan  a faculty salary study was launched. The Faculty Classification and Compensation Study concluded that on average faculty salaries at MGA lagged behind faculty at other similar institutions.  As a result of the study,  a phased implementation was developed to include three phases.

Implementation Plan

Salary Study Implementation Plan

The total fiscal recurring costs of the salary adjustments is $1.85M. A phased approach is necessary due to the enrollment decline in Fall 2021, which has and will continue to impact our budget through 2024.

  • Phase one occurred on July 1, 2022 (FY23) for 12-month administrative faculty and August 1, 2022 for 10-month faculty. Phase one implementation was 50% of the total adjustment, up to a max of $12,500 per individual.  
  • Phase two implemented on January 1, 2024 (FY24), covering an additional 25% of the total salary adjustment.
  • The third and final phase will occur on July 1, 2024 (FY25), covering the final 25% of the total implementation plan.

We are pleased to be able to complete the implementation on schedule. In addition, a careful review of the bands has resulted in a further adjustment to the faculty pay table minimums effective July 1, 2024
