The Highlands University Board of Regents voted unanimously last week to hike President Jim Fries’ pay from $175,874 to $232,000 a year.
For his part, Fries seemed almost taken aback by the amount of the increase.
“I’m both humbled and extremely appreciative of the vote of confidence from the board that this represents. I plan to do everything I possibly can to make us a better university at which students create their own futures,” Fries told the Optic.
