McDavis Gets Raise
(2008-06-27)
(WOUB) - Ohio University's president is getting a raise.

Trustees have voted to pay Roderick McDavis another 85-thousand dollars a year.

That will bring his salary up to three hundred eighty thousand...board chairman Daniel Delawder says trustees researched what presidents at Ohio University's peer institutions were making.

McDavis and the board talked about switching the academic calendar from quarters to semesters...something trustee vice-chair Marnette Perry says comes from unversity system chancellor Eric Fingerhut

A decision COULD be made when trustees and McDavis next meet in October.

McDavis says the board has decided NOT to build a new student health center for now...calling the cost simply too prohibitive.
