The University of Iowa will fill several highly-paid positions

Posted:

IOWA CITY (KWWL) - The University of Iowa is establishing and filling several new, highly paid positions despite cuts across campus.

Iowa added $1.1 million in salaries this year for just four, new senior positions at the university.

 The school is also working to fill more new, resurrected or open posts that could add up to several hundred thousand dollars in salaries.

University of Iowa spokesman Steve Parrott says that both the university and the University of Iowa Health Care system are large complex operations and that the schools' stewardship responsibilities require hiring people with talent and experience.
