II. J. 2 RANKS 64 AND 65
(Source: Minutes of the Committee on Advancement and Tenure, September 29, 1998, revised by the faculty on January 30, 2006)
It is CAT's view that the normal top rank of the salary scale is step 63. CAT also recognizes, however, that in certain cases it may be appropriate to advance a very senior faculty member to step 64 and, perhaps eventually, to step 65. Such cases should be limited to faculty members whose performance over the years has been unusually distinguished and whose recent performance has continued to be outstanding. Even in such cases, it is understood that advancement into these ranks should generally occur more slowly than normal merit increases.
