Students at Ohio University are protesting the $85,000 raise of President Roderick McDavis, the school's newspaper, the Post , reports. Students for a Democratic Society are petitioning that McDavis, who earns a $380,000 base salary, forgo his raise, much like a number of other college presidents have done so already.

The state of Ohio has cut $2 billion this past year, although higher education was mostly spared. However, the school predicts it will see a budget shortfall between $15 million and about $40 million over the next two years.
