Dear Campus Community,
As inflation rates reach record highs — 8.4% in the U.S. and 4.9% in North Carolina — I realize everyone is feeling the impact of our current economic situation. The recent state employee salary increases will be helpful. Still, even with those increases, some people in our community have faced financial hardships they might not have experienced before. I want to make sure everyone is aware of the resources available to help ease that burden for UNCSA employees.
Supervisors, I am asking that you please familiarize yourselves with these resources and communicate them to people on your team who might be in need.
As a UNCSA faculty or staff member, I want you to know that each of you is critical to our mission and an essential part of this community. I am hopeful that some of the resources in this email will be helpful, we want to work together to support the people of our community the best we can.
