Maryland's public university system will no longer award bonuses to top administrators following criticism amid rising tuition for students.
The University System of Maryland's Board of Regents decided to change the way the system handles bonus decisions for high-ranking school officials, a system spokesman said Monday.
Mike Lurie said the board voted unanimously Friday to no longer give bonuses to the system's chancellors or campus presidents. Also, future compensation agreements will be publicly announced after closed meetings.
Existing compensation packages that include bonuses will be reviewed and renegotiated, Lurie said.
