UNC board guided by state worker pay in campus heads’ raises


CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — The campus leaders running North Carolina’s public universities are getting another pay raise, but this time most are getting the same bump as other state employees.

Multiple media organizations report that the University of North Carolina’s Board of Governors approved 1.5 percent raises for 10 of the UNC system’s 17 campus chancellors. That’s the same approved for other state employees.

Six of the other seven chancellors are getting an extra boost. UNC officials they were awarded after comparing chancellor salaries at universities in other states.

The biggest raise goes to UNC-Charlotte Chancellor Philip Dubois, whose nearly 17 percent added increase gives him $450,000 a year.

N.C. State Chancellor Randy Woodson, Carol Folt of UNC-Chapel Hill and N.C. Central head Debra Saunders-White received the second-highest raises at nearly 5 percent.
