Rank and Salary

Initial rank and salary for lecturer faculty are based on professional and/or teaching experience and educational background and are determined by the hiring department. Most new lecturers are hired at the Lecturer A or B rank. As of July 2023, the classification salary ranges for the respective ranks are:

Lecturer A: $5,007 - $6,359

Lecturer B: $5,925 - $12,594

Lecturer C: $6,500 - $13,831

Lecturer D: $8,184 - $14,487

The salary ranges indicated are based on a "full-time rate" (15 weighted teaching units [WTUs]). A semester's worth of compensation is made up of six (6) payments of the given amount. To calculate your salary for a semester, the base rate would be pro-rated based on the units worked out of 15 WTUs.

If you were a Lecturer A assigned 3 units at the minimum salary, your pay would be structured as follows:
