MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - The president of Kansas State University says he’s giving the money he would make in a raise to be used elsewhere at the university.

WIBW-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1FsllmJ ) that President Kirk Schulz announced on the university’s website he won’t keep the 2 percent raise approved by the state’s Board of Regents on Thursday.

Schulz thanked the Regents for the raise and credits them with backing his K-State 2025 initiative. But he says he’s turning the raise over because the university couldn’t provide faculty and staff raises too. He says he’ll put the amount of money of his raise toward supporting the University Support Staff Awards program.

Students at most state universities in the state will also see their tuition and fees increase by no more than 3.6 percent this fall.
