RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Shaw University says it is ending a three-year salary reduction program, citing cost-cutting measures and gains in corporate and private giving as the reason for the move.

In a letter to faculty and staff, Shaw President Tashni Dubroy credited employees for their leadership and commitment following changes to federal student aid loan and grant programs in 2011, which she said dramatically decreased affordability and enrollment for hundreds of students at the predominantly black school in Raleigh over a two-year period.

Dubroy said the time is right to restore regular wage schedules and to set a standard for future investment in Shaw’s research and teaching capacity.

The school said employees affected by the salary reduction initiative will see restored earning levels beginning in September.
