LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - University of Louisville president James Ramsey has been given a raise.

The board of trustees approved the 4 percent increase Friday. The board's Compensation Committee had recommended a 6 percent increase, by Ramsey requested a smaller amount. Ramsey said that was in line with faculty and staff average increase.

 Roughly 45 percent of Ramsey's $600,000 salary last year came from the university and the other 55 percent from the privately funded university foundation. The trustees also recommended the foundation pay Ramsey a $150,000 bonus into his retirement account, which is called for under his contract.

It was announced last month that undergraduate tuition is also going up at the university by 3 percent.
