Salary increases to take effect Oct. 1


Some Marshall employees will see increases in their salaries, effective Oct. 1.

  • All university employees who were employed on June 30, 2014, (May 2, 2014, for faculty) and are continuing in that same appointment for the current fiscal year received a salary increase of $504, adjusted for Full Time Equivalent.
  • The Marshall University Board of Governors at its Sept. 3 meeting approved additional salary increases for some university employees. See the categories of employees below for details. These salary increases do not include raises for faculty in the professional schools of medicine, pharmacy and physical therapy or for new faculty starting in the Fall 2014 term.

Tenured and Tenure-Track Faculty

Salary increases for tenured and tenure-track faculty will be awarded in accordance with Marshall University Board of Governors Policy No. AA-7.

Library and Clinical Faculty

Salary increases for library and clinical faculty will be awarded in accordance with Marshall University Board of Governors Policy No. AA-45.

Term Faculty

Any term faculty member, except those employed for the express purpose of teaching in the INTO-Marshall English as a Second Language program, with a salary below $33,000 will have their salary increased to that amount.
Additional funds for raises for term faculty will be distributed to colleges based on the recommendation of the deans and the chairs.

Classified Employees

The salary of each classified employee, including those at the school of medicine, will be increased to the appropriate salary on the statutory Classified Employees Salary Schedule, based on the employee’s pay grade and step. Employees already at or above the salary schedule salary will not receive an increase.

Non-Classified/Other Employees

Increases for non-classified staff and other, non-instructional faculty, will be based on external and internal equity, experience and performance—as recommended by the employee’s vice president.

  • The Marshall University Research Corporation Board of Directors has approved additional salary increases for all employees paid through the MURC payroll system, effective Oct. 1. These increases will be based on external and internal equity, experience and performance and—for employees funded through grants and contracts—must be provided for in the approved project budget. (MURC employees paid through the state payroll system are eligible for the raises approved by the university’s board on Sept. 3 and detailed above.)
