UH-Hilo executive salaries rise 60 percent

By Associated Press

LAST UPDATED: 01:41 p.m. HST, Apr 30, 2012

HILO >> The University of Hawaii at Hilo added seven new administrator positions and increased its total budget for executive pay more than 60 percent over the past five years.

The Hawaii Tribune Herald reports this increase comes even though the school cut pay across-the-board pay in 2009 and froze salaries in 2010.

UH-Hilo Chancellor Donald Straney said the school has had to add new executives to the payroll because it opened a College of Pharmacy and College of Business and Economics.

He said enrollment grew 20 to 25 percent during the same period.

Straney said the school has worked hard to expand offerings to students even though the state has cut its budget cuts.

I agree. Without knowing how many positions there were in the first place, how can anyone make any sense of this story? It's this typical lack of content that lends to people flipping out over some of the stories on this website. Crappy reporting.

Shut down the Manoa Chancellor's empire and use the funds saved for the College of Pharmacy and College of Business & Economics. But wait - these colleges have been operational for some years now. Don't need bureacracy to ruin their operation. Just shut down the Chancellor's empire and save the $14 million.
