CINCINNATI (AP) — The University of Cincinnati wants to keep its new president for the long term.
Trustees on Tuesday gave Santa Ono (OH'-noh) a 10-year contract starting at $525,000 a year. The contract includes perks such as club memberships, a car and travel expenses, and also calls for bonuses and supplemental retirement plan pay. The Cincinnati Enquirer (http://cin.ci/SQN0sG ) reports the school earlier paid off the former Emory University official's mortgage on an Atlanta home.
Ono moved up from UC provost after president Gregory Williams abruptly resigned just before fall classes began, three years into the job.
The 50-year-old Ono says he intends to honor the contract that runs to 2022. The school has nearly 42,000 students.
