TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – The Kansas Board of Regents has voted not to raise the salaries of five of the six state university CEOs for fiscal 2017.
The Lawrence Journal-World reports that the board also voted Thursday to raise the base salary of Pittsburg State University President Steve Scott by 2 percent. His raise will come in the form of deferred compensation.
Scott is the state’s most-senior university CEO.
All university CEOs received 2 percent increases to their salaries last year but they said at the time that they would donate their raises back to their universities, citing budgetary challenges.
