IU President McRobbie to earn salary raise for 2011-2012 academic year
The new amount is a 12 percent increase over the $476,000 that McRobbie earned last year.
IU faculty and staff will also see a pay raise this upcoming year, albeit one of only 1.5 to 3 percent. The IU Board of Trustees approved the raise, which is to be merit-based, in June.
A month earlier, the trustees approved a 5.5 percent raise in tuition and fees for resident students at IU-Bloomington, as well as a 6.7 percent raise for nonresident students. Tuition also increased at IUPUI and across IU’s regional campuses.
This will result in an allotted $12.9 million for maintenance and improvement projects on all IU campuses, the trustees said. IU has a current maintenance backlog of more than $600 million.
