Chancellor Blank Calls for Increased Faculty Pay

Chancellor Rebecca Blank appeared on WKOW’s Capitol City Sunday where she made the case for better faculty and staff salaries.

Blank told reporter Greg Neumann that while faculty pay is higher than the pay of the average Wisconsin resident, she must pay market salaries to attract and retain top faculty: “It’s not about what I want to pay them. It’s about what I have to pay them.”
