From staff reports
In a message sent to University faculty and staff on Aug. 29, President Roderick J. McDavis announced the Board of Trustees approval of a one percent salary increase for all University faculty and staff on all campuses.
Each of you plays a valued role in helping Ohio University meet its goals. Today, with the approval of the Ohio University Board of Trustees, we are very pleased to be able to reward your efforts.
Last spring, the Budget Planning Council prioritized an additional one percent salary pool increase for faculty should we meet our enrollment targets for the 2013 Fall semester. We have now exceeded those targets, and as a result, preliminary information indicates that this year's freshmen class is Ohio University's largest, most diverse, and academically qualified class in the history of our institution!
Given where we are and these extraordinary times, the Ohio University Board of Trustees today approved the one percent salary increase for both faculty and staff on all campuses. The additional one percent salary pool will be allocated based upon guidelines developed by Pam Benoit, the Executive Vice President and Provost, and Stephen Golding, the Vice President for Finance and Administration.
The Board of Trustees and leadership appreciate all you do to support and prepare the next generation of thinkers, leaders, and innovators. Thank you for your dedication and commitment. It is because of you that Ohio University will become the nation's best transformative learning community!
Roderick J. McDavis
President, Ohio University
