The U of I decided to keep its current president on board until July of 2015.
Robert Easter's new contract comes with a $450,000 salary and an undisclosed amount in bonus payouts. The first bonus is scheduled for September.
At the same time, the U of I has raised the cost of tuition for several years in a row; students now pay more than $24,000 a year to attend the Champaign campus.
