TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The top administrators at Kansas’ six public universities will see their salaries increase in July, but private dollars will cover the increases.

The state Board of Regents approved the higher salaries Thursday but specified that each university’s fundraising foundation will provide the extra money.

The largest increases of $60,000 each went to Kansas State University President Kirk Schulz and University of Kansas Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little. Regent Fred Logan of Leawood said the boosts bring their salaries closer to those of presidents at comparable universities.

Schulz’s salary will be $460,000, or 15 percent more than it is now. Gray-Little’s will rise almost 14 percent, to nearly $493,000.

Other raises ranged from 2.4 percent for Pittsburg State University President Steve Scott to 4.7 percent for Emporia State University President Michael Shonrock.
