LAS VEGAS (AP) - Nevada's higher education chief is defending
his staff's six-figure salaries.
In a memo distributed this week, Chancellor Jim Rogers listed
the qualifications and contributions of the 106 system employees
who are paid more than $100,000 a year. The list includes deans,
vice presidents and University of Nevada Las Vegas' general
Some conservative groups claim the university system pays its
workers too much, particularly when the state is looking at
dramatic cuts in education spending.
Rogers said if the listed staff members were to leave Nevada,
the state "will have no system of higher education."
