Full-time faculty members at NorthWest Arkansas Community College can look forward to receiving a pay raise when they return to school this year.

The 4% raise is just one of several other expenses included in the college’s 2013 budget passed Monday evening (June 11) by the college’s board of trustees.

The 2013 budget – $41.2 million – also includes pay raises for adjunct, or part-time faculty members as well as members of the college’s staff. Adjunct faculty pay will be increased from $673 per credit hour taught to $700 per credit hour beginning with the fall semester.

Eligible non-classified staff employees will be given a 3% pay raise beginning July 1. Classified employees will also receive a 3% pay raise, provided it is approved by the state legislature. Click here to read the full story from our partners at TheCityWire.com.
