University of Maryland raises student worker wages at College Park campus

August 31, 2022

The University of Maryland, College Park, will be increasing its minimum wage for student workers to $15 an hour beginning in 2023, the school’s president said. President Daryll Pines announced the pay increase in a welcome message to the campus at the start of its fall 2022 semester. The University System of Maryland increased its minimum wage to $15 an hour for nearly all its employees at the beginning of 2022, but the increase did not include student workers. “This is a significant multimillion-dollar investment in a key pillar of our strategic plan: to invest in people and communities,” Pines said in the welcome email, which was sent out on Monday, the first day of the university’s semester.
