(Neb)-Regents To Vote Next Week On New NU Pres With 75% In Base Salary

By: John Axtell Posted at: 11/29/2019 11:21 AM
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -  The University of Nebraska regents have scheduled a final vote next Thursday on their priority candidate to run the system and on whether to pay him thousands more than his predecessor.
    
      Retired vice admiral Ted Carter, a former superintendent of the U.S. Naval Academy, was selected by the regents Oct. 25 as their priority candidate and he's spent the past several weeks touring the state and meeting residents and answering their questions.

      He succeeds Dr Hank Bounds, who left in August to become a faculty member at the University of South Alabama.

      Carter's starting base pay on a pending 5-year contract is $934,600 - a nearly 75% jump from the salary Bounds was making.

     Regent Tim Clare says the increase comes because of changes in higher education in the five years since Bounds was hired, adding that it costs more to attract top talent that can benefit the whole university system.
