Marshall board to meet in special session Thursday
HUNTINGTON — The Marshall University Board of Governors will meet at 3:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 26, in a special session to vote on four items, including salary adjustments for classified employees and faculty librarians.
The proposals are part of the current budget year plans to provide salary increases across the campus. The faculty comensation enhancement plan was approved at the August board meeting, but the classified staff proposal had not yet been approved by Classified Staff Council. About $250,000 was allocated for the increases.
The proposals to be voted on Thursday afternoon in the John Spotts Room on the second floor of the Memorial Student Center includes an option for the university president to recommend across-the-board increases in either a dollar amount or percentage, with exemptions for recently-hired employees .
The second part of the proposal includes a general salary increase of $600 for each classified staff employee, with those hired within the last year not included.
The total cost is expected to exceed the allocation by about $150,000.
The faculty librarians’ proposal would include a two-party salary adjustment for some but not all. Certain eligible faculty librarians who were awarded promotion for this semester shall receive an incremental amount of $5,600 or 10 percent, whichever is greater, for those promoted from assistant professor to associate professor; and $6,800 for those promoted to full professor.
In addition, certain librarians whose regular 12-month base salary is below specific minimums shall receive an increase to new base levels: $59,700 for professor/librarian IV; $52,300 for associate professor/librarian III; and $46,000 for assistant professor/librarian II.
