LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - University of Kansas chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little will join leaders of other state universities in refusing to keep a raise recently approved by the Board of Regents.

The university says Bernadette Gray-Little will donate her raise back to the school. Spokeswoman Erinn Barcomb-Peterson declined to say specifically what funds the chancellor would donate to. The Lawrence Journal-World reports (https://bit.ly/1LtNySn ) Gray-Little regularly makes gifts to the school and already planned to do so this year.

The chancellor’s salary would increase $10,000 to $510,000.

The regents last week approved 2 percent raises for university presidents, while instituting room and tuition increases and offering no salary increase to staff and faculty.

The other university presidents said earlier they would either reject the raises or return it to their schools.
