Seven of the 17 chancellors in the UNC system received pay raises, in a Friday approval by the UNC Board of Governors, for 2016-17 fiscal year.
Appalachian State Chancellor Dr. Sheri N. Everts, who took over that position in July 2014, received a 1.58% increase from $335,000 to $340,025 a year.
UNC President Margaret Spellings said raises were awarded based on comparisons with other institutions rather than individual performance, according to the News & Observer of Raleigh. After comparing chancellor salaries with those of other states, the Board of Governors determined a market range for a position and tried to place a chancellor within that range.
