IU employee salaries could see a slight bump if trustees meeting in South Bend approve next year’s budget, president Michael McRobbie announced Thursday.

The budget includes funds for a 1.5 percent employee salary increase, and a “1 percent pool” to retain faculty at IUPUI and the Bloomington campus.

In an e-mail to employees, McRobbie said he regrets not being able to increase salaries even more.

“Over the past three years, we have experienced a cumulative $90 million loss of state funding, and we are seeing costs continuing to rise faster than inflation for both employee health coverage and campus utilities,” McRobbie said.

Last year, IU Trustees increased employee salaries by 3 percent.
