During each year in which a faculty member serves as chair, he or she may choose whether to receive an honorarium ($6,500 during the first two years of chairing and $7,000 during the third year, when chairs serve full-year terms, half of these amounts when they serve for a semester), which would be taxable; the same amounts as research funds, which would not be taxable; or a course release. Chairs may choose to receive one form of compensation in one year and another in a subsequent year, with the exception of those who select the sabbatical option; chairs who serve for three consecutive years have the option of choosing an additional semester of sabbatical at the conclusion of their three-year term, in lieu of any other form of compensation for their work as chair. Chairs who serve for a semester during any period of their service are not eligible for the course release or sabbatical options.
