Regents to conduct mid-year evaluations this week
KCJJ Staff

The Iowa Board of Regents this week will conduct performance reviews of their executive level employees.

The Regents are meeting at the board office in Urbandale to evaluate the job done by the presidents at the University of Iowa, Iowa State University, and the University of Northern Iowa, as well as the board’s executive director and the leaders of the state’s School for the Deaf and Braille and Sight-Saving School.

All of those evaluations will take place in executive session at the request of each individual.

The mid-year evaluations are when the executive pay is typically determined, though UI President Bruce Harreld has declined any raises since he was hired in the fall of 2015. He makes an annual salary of $590,000 but also has a deferred compensation package of $1 million to be paid in 2020.
