- Aggregate data of non-tenure-eligible (NTE) faculty salaries for FY2012-2013 This table includes aggregate data of non-tenure-eligible (NTE) faculty salaries for FY2012-2013 for each category that includes at least 9 faculty members. Feinberg and research NTE faculty are not represented due to the fact that part of their income may be derived from private practice or external sources of funding. This information was provided by the Office of the Associate Provost for Faculty Affairs in May, 2013. A similar table for aggregate data of tenure line faculty salaries can be found at: http://www.northwestern.edu/provost/faculty-resources/faculty-salary-table.html
- NTE Faculty Data Table as of 2-24-2014. This table includes (self-reported) data regarding Non-tenure-eligible faculty titles, ranks, promotion pathways, etc., in most of the schools at NU. This data was provided by members of NTE faculty, and in some cases, reviewed by school administrators. Information contained in the table will be updated annually, in September, to reflect any changes, corrections, etc.

FACULTY SENATE MOTIONS:
Budget Committee Resolution to Conduct Survey: Motion Adopted December 3, 2014
The Budget Committee will survey tenure-line faculty opinion on the distribution of the pool of money for salary increases between retention and merit cases. The survey would consist of not more than two or three short questions, together with a space to submit further anonymous comments. Since salaries in Feinberg, Kellogg and Law are not part of the central budget, and the School of Professional Studies is also a special case, this survey would initially only cover faculty with appointments in the six schools which enroll undergraduates: Bienen, Communication, McCormick, Medill, SESP and Weinberg.
