The North Dakota Board of Higher Education has approved a 2.5% pay raise for the university system chancellor, who said he will donate the money. The increase for Mark Hagerott is the maximum amount approved by the state Legislature. It would bump his annual salary of $374,400 by $9,360, which he plans to give to the North Dakota University System Foundation. Hagerott says Board chairman Nick Hacker says Hagerott has met or exceeded eight goals that were laid out by the board a year ago, following a labor complaint that was eventually dropped. Hacker says Hagerott has also done a good job dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic.
