Regular, full-time employees – all regular full time employees receive full benefits, including medical/dental insurance, paid time-off (vacation, sick, holidays), retirement plan contributions, among other things. All staff, including part-time employees, are covered by a living wage standard of $10.67 per hour minimum. Faculty are not covered by a living wage standard, but are paid market rate wages. However, since faculty generally have a minimum of Masters or Doctoral/Professional degrees, their prevailing market wages are considerably above the living wage standard we have for staff employees.
