MINOT (AP) — North Dakota's Board of Higher Education is considering pay raises for its college presidents.
The board is meeting Thursday at Minot State University. The suggested pay increases range from 2 percent to 6 percent.
UND President Robert Kelley and NDSU President Dean Bresciani are the state's highest-paid college presidents.
Kelley is in line to make $330,000 during the next school year, while Bresciani's recommended salary is $312,000.
Board members are also reviewing a report from UND's medical school that includes plans for expanding its medical training.
The report is a scaled-back version of a plan that the Legislature rejected earlier this year. It includes a $29 million building.
Medical school officials say the project is needed to head off a shortage of doctors and health care workers.
