- The Faculty Salary Game
The Nevada Board of Regents has changed its regulations so that if the state orders salary cuts of state employees, tenured faculty members are more likely to be included among those who lose some of their pay, The Reno Gazette-Journal reported. Current regulations require the board to declare a financial emergency before tenured faculty members can lose any of their salaries, and the board declined to do so during the last state-ordered pay cut. The shift means that any future cuts will affect tenured faculty and other employees consistently.
