SIU faculty and staff get salary increase


SIU faculty and staff will now receive a 2% pay increase, according to a statement made by Chancellor Austin Lane

Lane said he has heard concerns about the lack of a pay raise from faculty and staff for sometime now.

“Today, we are pleased that for the second year in a row, SIU Carbondale can provide modest increases to employees’ salaries,” Lane said. 


The board of trustees approved a 2% increase to the salary pool yesterday.

The pay raise will be applied to faculty and staff who were hired before May 1, 2022 and will be effective July 1, 2022.
