No pay raises for Iowa university presidents this year


The state Board of Regents’ university presidents and regent leadership agreed to not raise the presidents’ salaries statewide.

Steve Gettel, the superintendent of Iowa’s special schools, is the only institutional head to receive a boost in compensation. University of Iowa President Bruce Harreld’s salary is $590,000 and has not changed since his hiring in the fall of 2015.

The decision to not raise the university presidents’ compensation comes after the state Legislature cut upwards of $20 million from the regent universities’ budgets in fiscal 2017.
