STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — The president of Penn State is getting a 2.5% salary increase and trustees are making it retroactive to the beginning of July.

The Board of Trustees on Friday voted unanimously to boost Eric Barron’s base pay to $855,000 a year.

He’s been Penn State’s top administrator since 2014.

The Centre Daily Times says that together with an annual retention bonus of $200,000, Barron will be paid more than $1 million.

The board is also approving salary increases for the provost, Nicholas Jones, and a senior vice president, David Gray.

Not bad! He probably deserves that, but wow, these kids get strapped with helping to pay for that. Student debt means nothing to the college administrators... keep that in mind when they talk you in to sending little buddy and sis to their empire to learn basket weaving.
