Separate Funding May Raise
Chancellors’ Pay by a Third
The successor to Chancellor Paul Hardin just got a
pay raise without even moving into South Building.
The UNC Board of Governors approved UNC
system President C.D. Spangler’s plan Friday to supple
ment chancellors’ salaries by as much as 33 percent
with private donations.
The plan would allow the school to pay its chancel
lor as much as $200,000, which would make the
University more attractive to potential candidates.
Under the proposal, money from a foundation
related to the institution could
be used. The funds would have
to be approved by the BOG and
be made public.
