Most Purdue University employees will not receive pay raises in the coming year because of the recession.
Purdue announced Wednesday that its budget for the coming fiscal year beginning in July won't include any salary increases. However, a school statement said that faculty members who are promoted will receive those scheduled salary increases.
University President France Cordova says the school must work "harder and smarter" to provide a high quality education during a time of economic pressure.
She says everyone at the school is being asked to share the burden.
Earlier this year, Purdue officials ordered a 2 percent budget cut and other cost-saving measures, including the elimination of merit bonuses.
