University Presidents’ Pay Raise Approved

KSAL StaffJune 23, 2014

The Kansas Board of Regents has approved 1.5 percent raises for the chief executive officers of five public universities.

The increases approved at a recent meeting take effect in July. Board members said they reflect appreciation for the job done by the CEO’s while also recognizing budget constraints in Kansas.

The increase will bring the annual pay of University of Kansas Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little to about $500,000. About $200,000 of her pay comes from private funds.

Among other Regents universities, Kansas State President Kirk Schultz will make nearly $467,000; Wichita State’s John Bardo, $350,000; Pittsburg State’s Steve Scott, $258,000; and Emporia State’s Michael Shonrock, $255,000.

Fort Hays State President Mirta Martin did not receive a raise because she takes office July 1.
