#9 – 12 UNC System Chancellors Receive Pay Raises
After a closed-door meeting Friday, the UNC Board of Governors made some university chancellors a lot richer.
Twelve of the system’s 17 campus leaders received raises that averaged 14 percent each, according to information made public Monday by the UNC system. Raises for three of those chancellors came to slightly more than 19 percent.
The dollar amounts of the raises ranged from $17,480 to $70,000 for N.C. State’s Randy Woodson, now the system’s highest-paid chancellor at $590,000 per year.
