Penn State President Gets $85K Raise

A year after taking the helm in embattled Happy Valley, Penn State President Rodney Erickson president has seen his salary rise from $515,000 to $600,000, essentially for not being Graham Spanier. PSU, which picked up Spanier’s $2.5 million in Sandusy-related legal fees, paid the former president $700,000 last year. Among those likely unhappy with the raise: the Penn State student body, which booed Erickson for removing JoePa’s statue from Beaver Stadium. [Centre Daily Times]
