OGDEN, Utah (AP) -- The Utah Board of Regents has approved a 3-point-5 percent salary hike for eight of 10 college presidents.

That's a move intended to keep talented administrators from fleeing for higher wages elsewhere.

The raises mean presidents at Utah Valley State College and Salt Lake Community College will be making more than peer averages, but several other presidents will remain below average. The S-L-C-C president will actually get a bigger paycheck than the heads of some of the state-owned four-year schools in the raises approved yesterday. It's up from 143-thousand last year to 170-thousand for Cynthia Bioteau.

University of Utah President Michael Young continues to be the highest paid at 305-thousand dollars a year. That's about ten grand better than last year for him.
