University of Kansas Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little will receive a base salary of about $510,000 for the fiscal year beginning July 1. The increase is $10,000.

Kansas State University President Kirk Schulz will see his salary rise about $9,300 to $476,000.

Fort Hays State University President Mirta Martin's base salary will rise by $5,200, to about $265,000, and Pittsburg State University President Steve Scott's salary will be about $263,000, also about $5,200 higher.
