Former University of Kansas Chancellor Robert Hemenway will continue to collect his chancellor's salary for the next two academic years.
A Kansas Board of Regents memo Hemenway, who is on a one-year sabbatical, will earn $340,352 per year during the next two academic years. He'll also receive benefits such as office space, secretarial support and tickets to Kansas athletic events.
The memo also said former Kansas State University President Jon Wefald will receive $255,298 next year, while former Pittsburg State University President Tom Bryant will get $202,593.
Both Wefald and Bryant will also get office space, reimbursement for moving costs and tickets to athletic events.
Regents chairwoman Jill Docking says none of the men took breaks during their tenures, and they will help with fundraising, teaching and scholarly work at their schools.
