Ball State lengthens Gora's contract

October 23, 2007
Ball State University's contract with President Jo Ann Gora has been extended to June 2012 from August 2009, when it was set to expire, following a unanimous vote by university trustees.

The action was taken during a meeting last month, according to The Star Press of Muncie. Gora arrived at the campus in 2004.

The newspaper obtained the information through a public records request.

Having started at a base salary of $260,000, Gora's current base is $330,000. A retention bonus in the extended contract calls for 20 percent her total base salaries from 2007 to 2012-equivalent to $330,000 if she were to receive no additional raises.

One trustee, Frank Hancock, said the he wanted stability in the position, particularly now that the university is considering launching a capital campaign.
