Pay raises delayed for ND college presidents

FARGO, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's public college presidents will have to wait before getting a pay raise.

The state Board of Higher Education on Wednesday delayed action on the pay hikes until several salary options presented by acting chancellor Larry Skogen are considered. Skogen is slated to work with two board members to come up with a recommendation to present to the entire board in the next few weeks.

Raises for the 10 college presidents would be retroactive to July 1.

Skogen himself is the president of Bismarck State College. Skogen took over for Hamid Shirvani, whose three-year contract was bought out by the board after just one year on the job.

The board on Wednesday approved paying Skogen an additional $4,000 monthly during the search for a new chancellor.
