Yale will spend $250,000 more for faculty salaries this year, Yale Provost Edgar J. Furniss announced yesterday. Meanwhile, the University said an announcement regarding salaries here will he made in February.
Yale instructors and assistant professors will profit most from the increases, but minimum earnings have been boosted all the way up the line. The minimum salary for faculty members is now $3,500.
The pay raise is part of several planned improvements made possible by the new tuition charge jump, announced by Yale President A. Whitney Griswold last month. One of the reasons the president gave for the new $1600 inclusive fee was the "extreme emergency, especially in the lowest and intermediate grades of the faculty, caused by the rapid rise in the cost of living."
