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.

    This is total arrogancy and stupidity! At a time we people can barely afford college tuition; they vote themselves a pay increase and our state legislators allows them to up tuition. This isn't using good economics for the state of Coloado, is it? I can send my student out of state cheaper than what I can send him to CU. CU should change their name to PU; they stink! None of their professors are worth that kind of money!!

    Correct me if I am wrong, but isn't that salary more than our own president makes?
