Dallas Morning News: University Administrators raise tuition and (their own) pay


The Dallas Morning News has a not surprising examination of administrator salaries in the University of Texas system:
Some top Texas university and college administrators have received double-digit raises in the past year, even as the state has struggled with deep cuts to higher education programs and exploding tuition costs for students.
Administrators did best:
Statewide, top university administrators received a 4.2 percent increase in salary from fiscal 2011 to 2013, a time of deep budget cuts in many state programs, including student financial aid. The raises totaled about $3 million.

University system administrators received a 9 percent increase in the same period, close a $1 million total.
Teachers, meanwhile, didn't do nearly as well:
Professors largely didn’t enjoy the same types of boosts. Statewide, full-time professors received a 0.7 percent increase in salary from fiscal 2011 to 2012, the difference of about $765.
 'Coincidentally':
Over roughly the same period, statewide tuition increased about 9 percent as well.
