         PART III: REALLOCATION/COMPENSATION PLANS – COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING

                    Annual Big Ten+ survey shows that the following increases are needed to reach Big 10
                    averages: Asst. Prof.: 1%, Assoc. Prof.: 3%, Full Prof.: 9%. This information will be
COMPENSATION        considered during the development of the ENG FY 2004-05 compensation plan.
PLAN                   Last year: FY 2003-04 Big Ten+ survey shows that OSU engineering faculty
                        average salaries are below Big Ten averages at all ranks. An increase of 4-5%,
                        while an improvement, will likely have little impact on competitive position.
