Grambling State University has announced a 3.477% salary increase for faculty and staff effective July 1, 2021. The increase is effective for fiscal year 2021-2022 for eligible professional, operations, and academic employees. Classified employees have been given a market pay adjustment effective July 15, in accordance with the Department of State Civil Service guidelines.
“Faculty raises were a number one priority during the legislative session and thanks to the support of Governor John Bel Edwards, the Legislature, the University of Louisiana System, and numerous others, it is now a reality,” said GSU President Rick Gallot. “Continued fiscal management and leadership at GSU have afforded us the opportunity to support increases for staff in addition to the faculty appropriation approved by the legislature.”
He said he is hopeful that increases for Grambling State faculty and staff will continue in the future.
“We remain optimistic that just as we were able to award a 2% raise three years ago, that pay raises will become a continued practice because (they) are so deserving of them,” he said. “There are so many stories shared by our students about the faculty and staff that embraced them and brought clarity to their academic journeys.”
Whether it’s instruction, research, creative work, or customer service, the service and dedication of GSU faculty and staff define the university’s reputation and produce tangible examples of what it means to be a part of the place Where Everybody is Somebody, Gallot said.
“I speak for the University of Louisiana System and the executive cabinet when I say thank you for your continued devotion to Grambling State University,” he said. “We appreciate you and we wish you well as we progress through the new fiscal year and continue to plan for our fall semester.”
