LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) _ The Kansas Board of Regents has approved 1.5 percent raises for the chief executive officers of five public universities.

The increases approved at a recent meeting take effect in July. Board members said they reflect appreciation for the job done by the CEO's while also recognizing budget constraints in Kansas.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports the increase will bring the annual pay of University of Kansas Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little to about $500,000. About $200,000 of her pay comes from private funds.

Among other Regents universities, Kansas State President Kirk Schultz will make nearly $467,000; Wichita State's John Bardo, $350,000; Pittsburg State's Steve Scott, $258,000; and Emporia State's Michael Shonrock, $255,000.

Fort Hays State President Mirta Martin did not receive a raise because she takes office July 1.
