Kansas State Faculty Discuss Pay Grievances

KSAL StaffMay 18, 2013

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.
