Michigan State University offers their faculty a $1,500 pandemic bonus

Michigan State University offers their faculty a $1,500 pandemic bonus.

Reported by Inside Higher Ed, MSU will provide all their full- and part-time professors with these bonuses along with three additional personal days in recognition of their incredibly difficult work during the pandemic.

The takeaway? This is a beautiful gesture, one that MSU’s stable financial situation allows them to do, and an essential one in a world where higher ed is losing too many good minds. Can we make similar gestures at our institutions? Can we afford not to?

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
