Oregon Provost Rejects Law Faculty's Offer to Divert Money for Pay Raises to Public Interest Jobs for Students

Following up on Tuesday's post, Oregon Law Prof Objects to Shifting Funds for Faculty Raises to Public Interest Jobs for Students:  Oregon Law Blawg, Some Information:

Oregon LogoRecently the University announced across-the-board cost of living adjustments and merit pay increases to take effect later in the year. A group of law faculty came up with the idea to divert the law school’s portion of the faculty merit pay funds to a post-graduate fellowship program for new law grads, in lieu of accepting a pay increase. Last Friday, this group brought this idea as a resolution (included below) to the regularly scheduled faculty meeting.  A wide majority of those present voted to approve the resolution—in addition, a majority of the full faculty support the resolution.

We brought the matter to the Provost and although he is supportive of our goals he cannot bend the University rules to make this creative idea happen.
