moneyFaculty and staff at Missouri Southern State University will see more in their paychecks as a result of actions taken last week by the MSSU Board of Governors.

The Board approved a 2 percent across-the-board salary increase for full-time faculty and staff and part-time staff who work throughout the calendar year.

The minimum annual raise will be $600 for full-time employees and $300 for eligible part-time employees.

The raise applies to all eligible faculty and staff who began employment with Missouri Southern prior to April 1, 2013.

This will be the second consecutive year MSSU employees have received a raise.

“I am very pleased the Board of Governors approved this pay raise,” said Board Chair, Dr. Sherry Buchanan. “This is a way of thanking MSSU employees for their hard work.”

The new pay raise will take effect July 1.
