Kansas State Faculty Discuss Pay Grievances

Associated Press - May 18, 2013 6:04 pm

Faculty members at Kansas State University say they are tired of being paid less than their peers at other institutions.

The faculty plans to present the university’s administration with a resolution next week. It seeks a moratorium on pay increases for upper administrators, or creation of new administrative positions, until salaries improve for faculty and unclassified professionals.

The faculty overwhelmingly approved the resolution during a meeting Thursday held to discuss salary complaints.

The Manhattan Mercury reports Kansas State’s average faculty salary is $73,810. That is last among the university’s peer institutions and in the Big 12 Conference.

President Kirk Schulz and Provost April Mason said in a statement that the administration is working on a three-year salary plan, with most of the investment going to faculty and staff.
