BOULDER, Colo. (AP) -- University of Colorado president Bruce Benson is defending raises for top administrators after tuition was raised for students.

Benson says the university's salaries are still far below those of peer universities

According to the Boulder Daily Camera, administrators used money generated from last year's 9 percent tuition hike to reward many of its top administrators with raises, increasing Chancellor Phil DiStefano, whose salary went up nearly $50,000 to $389,000 a year.

DeStefano says staffers who were meeting or exceeding expectations would earn a one-time, 3 percent raise and that eligible faculty would also get raises.
