University of Missouri President Sends Update on 2012 Budget
COLUMBIA - In an email discussing the 2012 budget sent Wednesday to university employees, interim president Steve Owens stated that he did not intend to reduce the two percent salary merit pool.
Owens mentioned the many different options discussed with the MU Board of Curators at a meeting two weeks ago, but says that faculty and staff are already undercompensated. The release also says that the University also doesn't plan on increasing employee's contributions to the retirement plan.
