Update on Compensation Increases: As we reported recently, the University has been programming the new minimum compensation rates to take effect on the upcoming August 31 payday (September 1 for Fellows), including amounts owed retroactive to July 1. These adjustments should now be reflected online. If you do not receive the proper adjustment, please let us know immediately.
We are also continuing to work with the University to compile the information required to process the lump sum payments outlined in the contract, which we expect to be processed in September.
