University trustees approved the bonus and raise for Easter at their regular board meeting Thursday in Urbana.

The bonus is part of a new incentive-based compensation plan for Easter. The bonus was based on the three-campus university system reaching set goals for cost reduction, enrollment and other factors under Easter.

Easter's base pay will increase 2.75 percent to $462,375. Most university employees are getting 2.75 percent raises.

Trustees Chairman Christopher Kennedy said the board is pleased with Easter.
