Vanderbilt University Giving Employees Bonuses for Their Service During COVID

“All the eligible faculty, staff, and postdocs, will receive a $1,500 bonus in their paychecks at the end of March.”

The bonuses are pretty decent and even part-time employees are getting them. Stuff like this does a lot for morale.

University Gives Unexpected Bonus To All Employees Saying Thanks for Their Service During Covid

The Chancellor of Vanderbilt University is recognizing all the school’s employees for their diligent work over the past two years with a surprise bonus in their paychecks.

All the eligible faculty, staff, and postdocs, will receive a $1,500 bonus in their paychecks at the end of March.

That’s around 9,000 workers, including part-time employees, who are getting the generous bonus.

In announcing the Chancellor’s Recognition Award—which coincided with the March 17 anniversary of the university’s founding 148 years ago—Chancellor Daniel Diermeier expressed gratitude for the extraordinary efforts of those at the heart of Vanderbilt’s educational mission.

“It has not been easy, especially during the unprecedented challenges of the pandemic,” Diermeier said.

“However, your dedication to our vision and goals enables our university to operate at its highest level. I am indeed grateful as we approach Vanderbilt’s 150th anniversary in a position of strength and with optimism about our path forward.”

More than 7,000 undergraduate students, and 6,400 graduate students, were enrolled in the Nashville, Tennessee university last Fall.

Vandy is a private school, but did they take COVID money?

I’m a faculty member at another uni (and yes it’s been a battle) but it’s somewhat ridiculous to just hand out cash if you took anything from the trough. A lot of people in a lot of jobs had it rough…I’d be more understanding if they had a salary freeze.

So, is this a case where “resisters” got fired, and the compliant got rewarded?
