CU opens finances amid administrator pay controversy

Filed under: Daily News | Tags:

The University of Colorado is posting information about the school’s finances and academic practices on its web site following controversy over tuition-funded raises for top administrators.

Officials are worried that lawmakers will require some universities to anonymously disclose salaries. The measure could also require them to disclose teaching loads, travel expenses and grant money.

The financial data has not been updated with the latest information. For example, it shows that the chancellor of the Boulder campus earns $340,000, even though Chancellor Phil DiStefano was given a $49,000 raise in October and now earns $389,000.

The university says the information was compiled in September before the raises were announced.
