REGENTS APPROVE PAY RAISES

The TWU Board of Regents recently approved the 2005-2006 budget, which includes salary increases for faculty and staff.

The faculty salary adjustment for this fall will bring their salary to 10 percent of the average for their discipline and rank based on the College and University Professional Association (CUPA) data for public institutions with a Carnegie Classification of Doctoral Intensive Universities. If faculty are within 10 percent of market, they will receive a 3 percent salary increase.

All classified, professional and administrative staff holding permanent positions will receive a market salary increase or a 3 percent increase, whichever is greater. All staff positions will be brought to 10 percent of market.

Pay increases will be reflected in the October 2005 paychecks. For more information, call Human Resources at 8-1-3555.
