WSU employees will see 1% pay increase in FY25 

The Kansas State Legislature has approved $1.69 million for our FY25 compensation plan, 50% less than was originally proposed. Therefore, on May 3, Wichita State’s divisional officers approved a 1% across-the-board pay increase, totaling $1 million for all benefits-eligible employees participating in the market-based compensation program. The remaining funds will go toward market-based compensation adjustments for staff and faculty.

The changes will take effect on June 9 and will be reflected in your July 5 paycheck Or, for those on a 9/10 appointment, the change will take effect on Aug. 4 and will be reflected in the Aug. 30 paycheck.

Please note that the university is working with limited resources, and this small increase doesn’t begin to reflect the tremendous value each member of our faculty and staff brings to this institution. We appreciate your dedication and hard work, and we’re committed to continue working with the Kansas Board of Regents, the governor and Legislature in striving to provide fair, market-based compensation within our means.
