Deans, Directors, and Chairs

In accordance with the current Memorandum of Agreement between the University, the Board of Regents, and KAPE (representing GTAs on the Lawrence Campus), I am providing the following information about minimum GTA salaries for FY 2012.

In order to conform to Article 6, Section 3 of the GTA Memorandum of Agreement*, we will need to ensure that each GTA with an appointment of 50% for the academic-year will have a base minimum salary no less than $12,750. Beginning August 18, 2011, the minimum biweekly rate for a half-time GTA appointment will be $656.25. The attached chart shows the minimum biweekly rates and AY rates for each FTE in .05 increments from .10 through .75.

Please consult with your dean’s office concerning the FY 2012 allocation total for GTA appointments in your department.

Thank you,

Diane H. Goddard
Vice Provost, Administration and Finance
