How is it that there are salary increases for faculty and not staff?
Our University is operating under a single set of guidelines for compensation of faculty and staff as issued by the system and in compliance with current state law. And those guidelines no matter who it is do not allow an increase in the employee's total salary except in case of promotion or a special exception for retention of critical faculty or staff. According to policy, we're not allowed to give raises. I'm not defending it; I'm just restating the policy.
