University of Nebraska President JB Milliken recent asked for 2.5 percent salary increase for non-union faculty and staff. NU Chancellor Harvey Perlman clarified to us, not all employees would necessarily get an increase.
“It’s not an across the board increase. We’re going to use it for merit purpose for those who performance deserves it and we are not going to spread it across the board”
Chancellor Perlman says for the university to remain competitive among peer institutions, salary increases are needed.
