Budget deficit may delay faculty raise - Katie Gagliano, Daily Reveille

Hopes for a mid-year faculty pay raise may be dimming as Louisiana’s Commissioner of Administration Jay Dardenne prepares to address the state’s remaining $315 million budget shortfall Friday. The raise would bring a much-needed boost to faculty morale, LSU Faculty Senate President Kevin Cope said. Many faculty members feel betrayed that faculty compensation hasn’t kept pace with peer institutions, and a raise would show faculty the University is moving in the right direction, Cope said. LSU President F. King Alexander said a faculty raise is a high priority for University administration. Despite this, nothing is imminent until the budget situation is resolved, LSU Media Relations Director Ernie Ballard said.
