3/29: Investing in our faculty and staff

  • The university will increase faculty and staff compensation and is close to finalizing guidelines for more flexible hybrid and remote work options.
  • All employees will benefit from this plan. Highlights: entry-level wages will exceed Los Angeles’ minimum wage; we will raise the floor for all research, teaching, practical and clinical (RTPC) and tenure-track faculty salaries; faculty and staff merit pools are being restored; the minimum graduate student stipend rate will increase substantially; and resident assistants will retain the boost given last year.
  • Adjustments will start in the upcoming fiscal year and continue over the next five years.
  • The university remains committed to increasing affordability and accessibility and will continue to steadily increase the financial aid pool for graduate and undergraduate students.
