Prefiled Resolution
(Final - Action)

FB.03.02 Resolution on Benefits

Whereas, The administration has historically focused faculty funding concerns primarily on salary and not benefits; and

Whereas, UIUC benefits are near the bottom of benefits in comparison to peer institutions; and

Whereas, Increases in benefits have not matched increases in costs of the services they cover; therefore, be it

Resolved, That the Urbana-Champaign Senate asserts that benefits are as important as salary, hence as salaries increase benefits need to increase proportionally; and

Resolved, That the Urbana-Champaign Senate urges the administration to develop a plan, in consultation with appropriate faculty groups, for attaining benefits that fall within the top third of those offered by peer institutions.
