 University Auxiliary Services
       Email from the Chancellor, Provost, and VC for Fin and Admin

Each of NC State’s auxiliary units has implemented operational expense reduction plans to help address COVID-19 related revenue shortfalls. Auxiliary units have worked diligently to consolidate services; reduce hours; close facilities; enact hiring, travel and spending freezes; renegotiate service contracts; and, where possible, transition from in-person services to alternative online services. Unfortunately, due to the sharp decrease in revenue, some of our auxiliary units, in addition to operational reductions, must move forward to implement personnel actions.

To help clear up any potential confusion, we want to provide the campus community an update on NC State’s budget planning and outlook. State support remains strong, our enrollment for the fall remains solid, our research enterprise is performing well and beginning today several thousand students are moving into on-campus housing. At this time, we do not anticipate campuswide reductions to be necessary for the fall semester.

 Annual Raise Process (ARP) and Release of 1% Salary Hold
       Memo from Provost Arden and VC Maimone

Without authorization of an ARP, we recognize the challenges that our university faces in maintaining salary equity within our institutional peer group as well as competitive pressures to retain top talent. Therefore, campus units should immediately release the hold on their one-percent for ARP and use the university’s existing guidelines to pursue salary adjustments to address labor market, equity, retention and other critical compensation needs in accordance with the university’s regular salary administration procedures.
