The move means Chancellor Stan Carpenter, who oversees the three-college system and has announced plans to retire, will be paid $270,589 if he works the full fiscal year. Carpenter was paid $266,590 this past year.
Peru State President Dan Hanson will receive $200,554, up from $197,590. Wayne State President Marysz Rames will make $212,227, up from $209,090. And Chadron State President Randy Rhine will earn $195,249, up from $192,363.
