Morehead State University held its convocation for the fall semester today. 

The event took place outside the Adron Doran University Center this go-round due to circumstances surrounding the pandemic.  Those in attendance heard updates from MSU President Dr. Jay Morgan who discussed the upcoming masking requirements, as well as efforts to create more greenspace on campus.

Closing out his speech on a high-note, Dr. Morgan also announced the plan to provide raises to the University’s full-time employees.

Morgan says employees can expect to see an increase of a couple-hundred dollars in their base salary, with plans to do something similar in the spring as well.  He says the move is part of a plan to rebuild MSU’s salary structure.
