UW gives faculty, administration 4 percent raise
SEATTLE (AP) -- The University of Washington Board of Regents has voted to give faculty and administrators a 4 percent raise this year, including President Michael Young.
His 4 percent raise equals a $22,000 a year, bringing his salary to $570,000
The Seattle Times notes that doesn't bring him anywhere close to his predecessor, Mark Emmert, who was the second-highest paid university president in the country, making more than $900,000.
The UW regents gave the current president a "solid" performance rating, which Regent Joanne Harrell says is a good review.
This is the first time since Young was hired in 2011 that he has received an increase in pay.
