The University of Wisconsin Board of Regents gave almost every UW system chancellor a 2% salary increase at their meeting on Dec. 8.

The raise brings UW-Madison chancellor Jennifer Mnookin’s pay from $750,000 to $765,000 and UW-Milwaukee chancellor Mark Mone’s pay from $452,090 to $461,132. 

UW-La Crosse Chancellor Joe Gow’s salary increased by 6%, from $247,661 to $262,719, according to the Board of Regents’ meeting document.

“Two percent matches the raises for other UW system employees,” UW system Media Relations Director Mark Pitsch said in an email statement to The Badger Herald. “An additional four percent was applied to the UW La Crosse chancellor salary to bring it above the minimum for executive pay ranges.”
