Missouri State University giving raises to all 2,200 employees

Missouri State University is increasing pay for its 2,200 employees.

The MSU Board of Governors voted in favor of a plan to give all its employees a 1 percent cost-of-living increase, plus a $600 raise.

That comes at a cost of about $3.3 million.

The pay increase follows a $700 one-time retention payment the Springfield school handed out in August.

MSU President Clif Smart said the Missouri General Assembly’s approval of a larger budget, following two years of cuts to higher-education spending in Fiscal 2017 and Fiscal 2018, made the raises possible.

He cited MSU employee surveys that have consistently identified compensation as a top factor in overall satisfaction.
