AMES, Iowa (AP) — The presidents of the University of Iowa and Iowa State University have been awarded four percent raises after the regents praised their performance.
The Iowa Board of Regents approved the raises on Thursday during a meeting in Ames, bumping UI President Sally Mason’s salary to $513,000 and ISU President Steven Leath’s to nearly $467,000.
The Iowa City Press-Citizen (http://bit.ly/19QcBMY) reports that the salary adjustments came after the regents met behind closed doors to evaluate their performance Wednesday.
Board President Bruce Rastetter told reporters the raises were a reflection that the presidents achieved the goals the regents set for them last August. They were higher than the 2 percent awarded last year.
University of Northern Iowa President William Ruud didn’t receive a raise because he just started about two months ago.
