Human resources at Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) recently organized an interactive half day of professional development for faculty and staff at the institution. Here, Candace Baer and Cassandra Goryl from RISD share five tips on how you can plan a successful professional development event at your institution.
The meetings afforded both CUPA-HR as an organization and the individual members who attended a platform to discuss issues for which the association has led advocacy efforts over the past year as well as issues currently impacting higher education and higher ed HR.
What does the staff workforce look like in higher ed? How long do they stay in their positions? Are women and minorities well-represented and paid equitably? Which staff positions have the highest salaries and which have the lowest? How does this pay vary across the country? These are some of the questions we sought to answer in this year’s Staff in Higher Education Salary Survey.
Recently released data from CUPA-HR’s Professionals in Higher Education Salary Survey give us a good idea of which positions were changed to nonexempt and which positions saw salary increases to get them to the DOL's proposed salary threshold.
