MSU President Clif Smart proposes mid-year pay raises for employees

A mid-year pay raise of $600 has been proposed for Missouri State employees working this year without a cost-of-living increase.

MSU President Clif Smart gave the Board of Governors a heads-up Wednesday that he will present that proposal in December.

“People have been working so hard under really challenging circumstances,” he said. “We thought that would be a tremendous morale booster, particularly as universities all across America are furloughing or laying people off.”

He added: “Very few people are going to be doing pay raises.”

Smart said the university made deep budget cuts going into the 2020-21 year amid the pandemic, but the financial outlook for the spring 2021 semester is solid. Gov. Mike Parson recently released $1.6 million, which had been held back, for the university.

He said there was other good news: “Enrollment came in much stronger on both campuses than we had budgeted.”

Smart proposed spending $933,000 of the $1.6 million in state funding to provide a mid-year pay raise of $600, which will cost $875,000 in Springfield and $58,000 in West Plains.

An estimated 1,555 employees will receive the mid-year raise.

He said two options were presented to the administrative council and executive budget committee: A 1 percent across-the-board raise or $600 for each employee, regardless of their salary.
