Dear Campus Community:

As you are probably aware, there is not a finalized budget for the new fiscal year. At this point, our payrolls have not been affected. Employees will continue to be paid from available University resources, and any emergency expenses will be dealt with similarly.

Given the uncertainty of the budget, we cannot announce salary increases at this time except for those employees with whom we have a negotiated agreement requiring a specific salary increase. We will review all budgetary allocations as soon as the state budget issues are resolved.

I appreciate the support from all campus constituency groups. We will continue to keep the campus notified when additional budget information becomes available.
