CAPE GIRARDEAU (AP) - Faculty and staff at Southeast Missouri State University will be getting raises in early 2014 under a plan approved by the university's board of regents.
The Southeast Missourian reports the increases take effect Jan. 1 for 251 employees across several departments. The total projected cost is $1.24 million from the general fund and about $212,000 from auxiliary and designated revenue.
The board approved the planned increases Thursday.
University president Kenneth Dobbins says the increases are a way to attract and retain quality faculty and staff.
