The University of Alaska’s Board of Regents on Friday gave new President Pat Gamble a surprise gift Friday, boosting his pay 8.5 percent.
Gamble’s new salary will be $320,000, up from $295,000 when he was hired last year.
Board Chair Fuller Cowell of Anchorage said the increase was in recognition of the job Gamble has done since taking charge of the UA system last June.
“Things have gone very well this year, he’s done an outstanding job,” Cowell said.
