The Kansas Board of Regents gave Kansas University Chancellor Robert Hemenway a 5.75 percent pay raise in late June.
The increase amounts to an $11,931 increase from $207,489 to $219,420. The regents gave all public university chiefs and the executive director of the board the same percentage increase.
Regent Fred Kerr said the increase is in line with the already approved 6.2 percent pay raise for faculty.
Hemenway said he appreciated the salary boost.
"All the presidents and the chancellor ... appreciate the board's support and will work hard to live up to the confidence that has been shown," he said.
Jon Wefald, president of Kansas State University, now makes $208,820.
