Automatic User import without overwriting Administrator and Proctor roles

I am starting to user the userload command line function.  I want to import users from our university's badge system into Pharos with the Role User.  But, I already have some library staff member in the database set with higher privileged role such like Proctor and Administrator.  If I import all the users from the automatically generated file, the library staff members lose their high privileged roles. 

 

Is there a way to do an update without overwriting these roles?  The only way I can think is to run the userload twice.  Once removing all the Role declarations from the import file and just performing an update on existing users.  Then to run the import again with the Role declarations set to User and only performing an insert of new records.
