Troy Univ. Faculty and Staff Pay Increase

The faculty and staff of Troy University are getting a pay raise.

Troy chancellor Dr. Jack Hawkins, Jr. says the university is raising all salaries by five percent.

The school will also cut the family health benefits costs from nearly in half, thanks to contributions to the university.

“We found a long time ago that unless your plans and your budgeting intersect, then you can't be successful. So one of the more important things that we do at this gathering is advice faculty and staff of the budget priorities.”

Hawkins says the pay raise and lower health benefits costs will not raise the school's tuition costs.
