AMES, Iowa (AP) - The Iowa Board of Regents has extended contracts and raised some payments in order to keep all three university system presidents on the job.

The Iowa City Press-Citizen reports that the regents took the action Thursday for the presidents at the University of Iowa in Iowa City, Iowa State University in Ames and the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls.

The board approved contract extensions through June 2023 for University of Iowa President Bruce Harreld and Iowa State President Wendy Wintersteen. Northern Iowa President Mark Nook’s contract was extended through June 2025, with the option to renew for an additional two years.

They won’t receive salary increases, but regents opted to extend and, in some cases, increase payments to their deferred contribution plans.
