Presidents of 4 Kansas universities decline salary increase

June 23, 2015

— The presidents of four Kansas universities say they will decline or donate a 2 percent pay increase approved for them last week.

The Kansas Board of Regents approved the raises for the presidents the same day a 3.6 percent tuition and fee increase was imposed on students.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports the presidents of Wichita State, Kansas State, Pittsburg State and Fort Hays State say they will decline the raises or donate the money to programs at their schools.

University of Kansas Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little has not said what she will do with the raise.

The interim president of Emporia State was not included in the pay increase.
