The chancellor of the University of Kansas is joining the presidents of four other state universities in giving up her annual pay increase. KU spokeswoman Erinn Barcomb-Peterson says Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little has regularly made gifts to the university in excess of her annual salary increase and plans to do the same again this year. The Kansas Board of Regents recently approved 2 percent pay hikes for university presidents. The leaders of Wichita State, Kansas State, Pittsburg State and Fort Hays State have already said they intend to decline the raise or donate that money back to their schools.
