      3. Changes in department adjunct faculty budgets: adjunct budgets are increased in response to sustained enrollment increases that are not fully served by new tenure track faculty.

      4. Changes in summer budgets: summer budgets should consider summer enrollment changes and/or base compensation increases for full-time faculty.
