Merit Raises Cut for Top Purdue Staff

Share this post

Purdue President Mitch Daniels has announced the university is eliminating merit pay raises for all senior administrators, deans, and administrative and professional staff with salaries above $50,000 for the next two years – in a letter posted online he says that's expected to save five-million dollars, and part of the need to offset forty-million dollars in foregone revenue from a two-year tuition freeze, the first break in a 37-year string of increases.
Daniels says it's been too easy in higher education for institutions to decide first what they would like to spend, and then raise student bills to produce the funds. He says Purdue shouldn't forget the dollars they spend come for the most part from either a student’s family or a taxpayer.
