Since November 16 the faculty equity workgroup has met 3 times, including today. Today we reached agreement on the methodology for internal equity adjustments provided in Article 30 Section 4 (a) (1) for Non Tenure Track Faculty. This should help us resolve a couple of outstanding issues on a couple of method issues for the tenure related market based equity adjustments.

Those conversations continue on December 11 and December 15 where we have devoted two full days to finding a resolution on remaining outstanding issues with the mediator.
