BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A North Dakota Board of Higher Education committee is recommending 3 percent salary increases for most college and university presidents.

The full board on Sept. 3 will consider the recommendations, which include a 5 percent annual raise for Williston State President Raymond Nadolny due to the high cost of living in the oil patch boomtown.

The recommended increase is 3 percent for all other presidents, including North Dakota State President Dean Bresciani (bruh-SHAW’-nee). Interim University System Chancellor Larry Skogen had recommended a 4 percent increase for Bresciani next year and a 3.57 percent increase in 2016.

Skogen said his request was to bring Bresciani’s salary in line with his peers. Board member Grant Shaft said he wasn’t comfortable with the proposal and successfully pushed a motion to change it.
