Filed in HBCUs on August 5, 2016
Shaw University, the historically Black educational institution in Raleigh, North Carolina, has suspended the campus-wide salary reduction program that has been in place for three years. The university said increases in enrollment, cost-saving initiatives across academic and operational budgets, and historic gains in corporate and private giving have allowed the educational institution to restore regular wage schedules.
Tashni Dubroy, president of Shaw University, said “we see this as a foundation for our continuing efforts to make our salary scale among the most competitive in the state through new expectations for sponsored research, innovation in teaching, and philanthropic development within our academic units.”
A native of Jamaica, Dr. Dubroy is a graduate of Shaw University. She holds an MBA from Rutgers University in New Jersey and a Ph.D. in chemistry from North Carolina State University.
