Illinois State University Employees will get a raise this year. New President Tim Flanagan says he has allocated a two percent increase in the personal services budget for most University faculty and staff. ISU employs more than 3,200 people. The increases are merit based, so some will receive more than two percent and some less. Some workers pay is set through negotiation as well. Flanagan says the increase is modest because of the state's continuing economic challenges. Flanagan says it is important to do the best possible to attract and retain excellent faculty an staff. Flanagan says ISU remains in stable financial condition. The $74 million state appropriation stayed the same. Flanagan says he does not foresee a need for layoffs or furloughs in the near term. Raises will appear in paychecks at the end of October. Salary levels retroactive to July will be included by the end of November. The increases will cost ISU $3.1 million
