Indiana University's trustees have approved a plan for pay raises averaging 3 percent after salaries for most of the
school's 17,000 employees were frozen last year.
The board voted unanimously to approve the proposal from university President Michael McRobbie during a meeting Friday in Indianapolis.
The pay raises will go into effect Nov. 1, although how the increases are awarded to individual employees will be up to deans and other administrators.
Money for the raises will come from $17 million set aside to hedge against possible state cuts and from other cost-saving steps still to come.
