HOUGHTON, Mich. (AP) - Michigan Technological University in Houghton has given its president a two-year extension.

Glenn Mroz’s contract had been due to expire June 30, 2016. But the university reported Monday that its board of trustees has lengthened the deal to June 30, 2018. It can be renewed afterward on a year-to-year basis.

Mroz also got a salary increase from $315,000 to $344,000, plus a housing and car allowance.

Officials at the Upper Peninsula school said the improvements were based on a study of compensation for presidents of other “high-research” universities, as well as other institutions in Michigan.
