A casualty of a tight state budget.
The Board of Higher Education has decided none of the 11 college and university presidents will be getting a raise. Neither will the Chancellor, or the staff at the University System office.
That’s in-line with the decision by the state Legislature to not give salary increases to state employees.
The last time the presidents received a raise was in 2014.
Board member Kevin Melicher of Fargo said while everyone understands the state’s fiscal situation, this can’t continue for very long.
