Bonuses for Employees Earning Less Than $135,000

May 25, 2022

Dear colleagues,

In my April 4 update about the FY22 operating budget, I outlined our University’s strong financial position and shared my intention to offer bonuses in appreciation for your many contributions this year.  

At the end of May, the University will begin distributing one-time, year-end bonuses to more than 3,000 members of our full-time faculty and staff, as well as adjunct faculty. In addition, I have asked our team to work with the union representatives of our bargaining units — housekeepers, groundskeepers, delivery staff, and maintenance staff – to seek their agreement on these new awards, and to ensure all eligible full-time employees share in this well-deserved bonus.  

Here’s how this will work:

These year-end bonuses are one tangible way the University can show its gratitude to you for your commitment to making SLU so successful. Because of you, SLU continues to fulfill a higher purpose, and serve the greater good.  

May God bless each of you.
