Friday, May 5, 1995 f Rocky mountain high Oobleck, a band of WSU students consisting of Kris Harrob entertain during open hour Thursday under the Stewart Bell Faculty opens bankbooks By Jennifer King Signpost editor in chief The monetary worth of faculty and staff members has now been publicly announced, but not without mixed emotions. Faculty and staff salaries were released Monday in accordance with a bill passed last year making all college and university sala- ries accessible to the public. The publication of the salaries f.- has caused some concern among J faculty members and has raised questions such as gender equity and the need for a campus-wide evaluation of salaries. J Chloe Merrill, child and family I" studiesdepartmentchair,said the I releasing of salaries can and has caused problems. I Merrill, who makes $51,943 a year, noticed people comparing i salaries with faculty members in other departments and colleges on campus. "There are some discrepancies and the university is looking at them," she said. "The administration is trying ns hard as they can to reduce the number of discrepancies."Merrill said she doesn't, have any complaints about the release of the salaries. "It is public record and people have to understand that and live with it." She said the releasing ot the salaries does have its drawbacks. "It does cause hard feelings between people." Merrill said it would be more beneficial if the salaries ot those in the work force outside ot the university setting were released. - TV "Educators don't make much," she said. "People think we make a lot more than we do." There are a lot of factors considered in salaries; like length of time at WSU and other universities, the number of degrees and length of time working in the profession, Merrill said. Merrill said the salaries are low in her department in comparison with other departments on campus and she is concerned because of the importance the child and family studies department has on education and society. The department deals with children and families and strengthening the family relationship. "If it is a national agenda, it should be a university agenda," Merrill said. Levi Peterson, chairman of the English department, agrees that there are some inaccuracies when comparing different departments and colleges on campus. "We're quite a big department there's close to 36 of us," Peterson said. "Percapira though, we're one of the lowest (paid) departments."Peterson, who makes $65,006, said he believes that the salary gap that exists between colleges and departments needs to be narrowed."You have to balance everything but I don't think it's realistic to have a salary sched ule," he said. Peterson said he has seen faculty members become emotional over the publishing of salaries. "It's demoralizing and it begins to all'ect the teachers and then' et- , c Salaries .: .?

|Description||Weber's current student newspaper, the Signpost, first appeared on September 29, 1937. For two years prior to that time, campus news was disseminated via announcements posted on a bulletin board known as the "Signpost". As a result, the masthead of the first issue of the paper itself featured a rudimentary wooden sign with the title spelled out in rustic-looking letters. Over the years the paper has been published continuously, though the look, size and style has changed several times.|
