The announcement was made after the California State University faculty union released a report detailing the struggles of CSU teachers. The report surveyed 5,500 teachers in the CSU system.
Of those, 43 percent said they were unable to afford a home in their campus community. Many university teachers reported struggling to keep up with expenses.
In the past eight years, most teachers at Cal Poly received less than a 3 percent increase in pay. The salary adjustments this year will bring fulltime assistant professors up to a minimum target salary of $65,000, assistant professors up to $71,000; and full professors up to $83,000.
