Three Idaho university presidents receive pay raises

BOISE, Idaho (AP) - The State Board of Education unanimously approved Monday pay increases for three Idaho university presidents.

The Lewiston Tribune reports that presidents of Boise State University and Idaho State University will receive 5 percent raises starting Sunday. The Lewis-Clark State College president will receive a 3 percent pay increase.

The raises follow performance evaluations conducted in May.

BSU President Bob Kustra's salary will become $371,000, up from his current annual salary of about $353,000.

ISU President Arthur C. Vailas will receive more than $357,000, compared to his now $340,000 annual salary.

Lewis-Clark State College President J. Anthony Fernandez will go from about $171,000 to $176,000.

The University of Idaho president was not included because the new president was just hired in March.
