Chancellor raises pulled from university agenda

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Four University of Wisconsin chancellors will have to wait for raises that had been expected to be approved this week.

  University System spokesman David Giroux says the Board of Regents will not take up the raises on Friday because of "turmoil and uncertainty in our nation's economy."

  Giroux says he doesn't know when the raises may be considered, but they won't be up at the next meeting in November.

  Chancellors in Milwaukee, Stevens Point and Eau Claire along with the chancellor of the UW Colleges and UW Extension were in line for raises.

  They ranged from 3.5 percent to nearly 5 percent.

  The university justified the raises to bring the chancellors' pay in line with colleagues at other schools.
