Faculty raises announced …

6/14/2010: … at the University of Florida. From Paul Fain in the Chronicle:

Despite struggles with years of budget cuts, the University of Florida announced on Friday a broad package of pay raises for faculty members. The 4-percent merit raises buck a national trend of wage freezes at public universities and are possible, university officials said, because Florida tapped federal stimulus money to cut costs through buyouts and retirement payments.

For 2009-10, average pay for a full professor at UO was about 12% below Florida. (And no, Provost Bean, we’re not counting UF’s Med School.) Eugene’s housing prices are about 10% above Gainesville’s.
