A Revision and Correction
My September 16, 2013 post "Patronage or just a reward for services rendered?" requires some clarification. I indicated that eight administrators had received raises in the past two years that averaged 17.65 percent. I should point out that one of the administrators I mentioned, Dr. Yvonne Harris has enjoyed only a 7.9 percent raise in the past two years. Dr. Harris began her employment at Chicago State on August 16, 2010, at a monthly salary of $9833. I mistakenly used the university's ISL 2012 fiscal year submission as Harris's annual starting salary (103,247) in 2010. Based on her monthly salary I should have calculated it as $117,996 annually. This recalculation results in a change in the percentage raises for the eight administrators I mentioned in the post. Instead of an average raise of 17.65 percent for the past two years, their average raise stands at 17.5 percent for the past two years.
