Princeton’s trustees approve supplemental 2.5% midyear salary increase for most faculty, academic professionals and staff

Princeton University’s Board of Trustees has approved a 2.5% midyear base salary increase for most benefits-eligible staff, faculty and academic professionals. The increase is effective Feb. 1.

The rare, supplemental midyear increase applies to eligible salaried and hourly University employees hired on or before Oct. 1, 2022.

This increase responds to the unanticipated persistence of inflation that has affected the market competitiveness of some University salaries over the past year,” said Dean of the Faculty Gene Jarrett and Vice President for Human Resources Romy Riddick in a joint memo to University employees.

The midyear increase is separate from and in addition to pay increases that will be determined this spring through the Human Resources merit increase program for staff members and the Office of the Dean of the Faculty’s reappointment and salary review processes for faculty and academic professionals.

Online FAQs with eligibility details are available for faculty and academic professionals, and University staff members.
