Hampton University President William R. Harvey and his wife Norma have donated $1 million of their fortune to the university to raise salaries for instructional staff, HU announced Thursday.
The raise will become effective at the beginning of the 2011-2012 school year, according to a statement.
For the next three years, HU's approximately 300 faculty members are guaranteed a 3 percent raise and can earn up to 8 percent based on performance. The higher percentage will be used as an incentive for faculty who receive grants, publish articles in peer-reviewed journals, or provide significant service to HU, the university said.
