Burse's pay cut will increase the salaries of 24 KSU employees, some of whom were making as littles as $7.25 an hour, to $10.25 an hour. Burse said that his giving up $90,000 is a response to "tough times" and wanting to ensure that university workers know the school's board and president "care about them and want to do the very best by them."

Burse wants to make clear that his pay cut is not a poke at other university presidents to follow suit.

"I was in a position where I could do that," and he recognizes that his decision is one that many people aren't able to make.
