Dear Campus Community:
After considerable thought, I have decided not to accept a salary increase this year. I appreciate the thoughtfulness, support and offer from our Board of Trustees, but ultimately believe it in the best interest of the institution to forgo any salary increase at this time. Overall institutional efficiency has been at the forefront of my agenda from the day I started, a value I firmly believe and will continue to live.
Thank you for your hard work on behalf of our students, University and community.
