Faculty Senate Discussion

Dual hire under RCM

Filed under RCM Impacts 2010-11 by pilar.mendoza@ufl.edu on November 1, 2010 | No Comments

One of the strongest assets of a competitive university to attract top faculty is to have a functioning dual hire program. This means that colleges must collaborate in order to accommodate receiving spouses, including sharing salaries. What would be the incentives for a college to “help out” another college hiring a spouse given that RCM focuses on the college-specific finances? I have seen several departments loosing their faculty due to issues with dual hires because colleges do not want to take on the burden of “helping other colleges” in this fiscal climate.  I see this as a negative implication of RCM.
