Merit Program and One-Time PaymentAs I mentioned at the State of the University address, I am pleased to share that the university is able to fund a larger merit program for FY24. We also recognize the continued challenges of the current economic climate, and to further support our community during this inflationary environment, the university is once again implementing a one-time payment of $1,500 for all eligible faculty and staff.
