Compensation for faculty members conducting summer research is normally 2/9th of the individual's annual academic salary. A faculty member who has no summer teaching or administrative responsibilities can request to be compensated for summer research up to 3/9ths of his/her annual academic salary.
The request must include a time and effort report, which documents how the faculty member will spend his/her time on one or more research projects and gives specific start and end dates. He/she must also identify all sources of funds (both internal and external) supporting the research, describe any restrictions imposed by individual funding agencies, and explain how his/her research plan satisfies those restrictions.
This request will be submitted to the Vice President of Academic Affairs, who will either approve or deny the request.
