Faculty at EWU Can Expect Pay Raises

Posted: Updated:

CHENEY, Wash. -- A new contract has been ratified by the Board of Trustees at Eastern Washington University and the United Faculty of Eastern.

Beginning on September 1st, faculty at the university can expect their salaries to be brought up to market level.

The contract is good for three years and calls for market adjustments based on how a faculty member's salary compares to the average for their rank and discipline at other schools.

The goal is to have salaries meet the 'average' by the end of the three years.

The move comes after a study found that more than 75-percent of faculty made less than the average salary at other schools.
