Eleven of Pennsylvania’s state univeristy presidents will receive raises effective Jan. 1, now that an 18-month salary freeze has been lifted. The 2.5 percent to 5.9 percent pay hikes are being given to retain quality administrators, the Associated Press reports.


    The three presidents who are serving interim or who’ve been hired too recently will not receive raises. University unions also received a 4 percent pay increase, and tuition for the fourteen universities went up 4.5 percent.
