OREM, Utah (AP) -- Utah Valley State College plans to hire 17 new faculty members and increase wages for employees. It's all thanks to this year's state budget surplus.

U-V-S-C President William Sederburg said the 2005-2006 operating budget for the school is 98-point-five (M)million dollars. That's compared to last year's 89-point-three (M)million dollars.

Ten of the new faculty members will be advisers to assist students in career planning and academic counseling.

Beginning in July, U-V-S-C's salaried employees will see a four-percent increase on their paychecks.

U-V-S-C also plans to devote one-point-three (M)million dollars to develop new bachelor-degree programs.
