A Message from President Denise M. Trauth

February 1, 2022

Dear Faculty and Staff,

I am happy to announce that the University is in a position to provide a merit-based bonus to eligible employees this year tied to our performance management and salary review processes.  We will be returning to the university’s long-standing practice of distributing these non-recurring bonuses based on merit beginning in your October 2022 paycheck.

I hope that this action demonstrates our appreciation for the good work that you are doing every day at Texas State University.  The past two years have been some of the most challenging in American history, yet we have remained a strong university community dedicated to our mission and our shared values.  Additional details regarding the implementation process for the bonus will be distributed to supervisors by our Office of Human Resources later this spring.


Denise M. Trauth
