UW Trustees Meet on Budget

Adam Porter, Townsquare Media

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The University of Wyoming Board of Trustees is likely to seek more money for salaries in a new two-year budget request.
Trustees were meeting Friday to discuss their budget request to the state.

The last salary adjustment for UW employees was an average 4 percent increase in 2009. Like other state agencies, UW this fall will distribute a 1 percent bonus to university employees as approved by the 2013 Legislature. But officials point out that is a one-time boost.

They note that at no time in the past 30 years have UW faculty and staff members gone so long without permanent salary adjustments.

New UW President Bob Sternberg says merit pay increases for faculty and staff is a top priority.
