Sr. Leadership at ASC Forfeit Upcoming Raises

Posted Date: Wednesday, April 1, 2009 - 08:11

Senior leadership at Alfred State College has unanimously agreed to forfeit their upcoming raises in order to offset current budget deficits and give back to the College in this difficult financial climate.

"I am pleased that the senior leadership here at the college is taking seriously the need for giving back to the institution," said Alfred State College President Dr. John M. Anderson.  "It sets a fine example at Alfred State, and I encourage other faculty and staff to follow their lead."

The funds that would have been used for the raises will be used instead to help offset the shortfall in the adjunct (part-time) faculty budget.
