The Board of Regents yesterday (Thursday) approved four percent raises for the presidents of Iowa State University, the University of Iowa and the head of the state special school for the blind and deaf.
I-S-U president, Steven Leath’s salary will jump up to 466-thousand-752 dollars, U-I president, Sally Mason’s will increase to 513-thousand-and three dollars. The head of the special schools, Patrick Clancy, will see his salary jumped to 173-thousand-526 dollars. Clancy will also receive a 10-thousand dollar performance bonus. University of Northern Iowa president, William Ruud did not receive an increase in his salary of 340-thousand dollars since he just took over the job. The Regents also approved a performance bonus of five-thousand dollars for this year and next for Regents executive secretary Bob Donely. Donely was also given a two-year deferred compensation package of 50-thousand-dollars in the first year and 75-thousand in the second year.
The salary increases were announced after the board spent much of the day Wednesday in performance reviews. Regent Robert Downer of Iowa City talked about those closed session reviews.
