Positive review, but no bonus for UK president

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - University of Kentucky President Eli Capilouto has received a mostly positive review after a year on the job but won't receive a performance bonus.

Board of Trustees Chairman Britt Brockman says the board decided against a bonus because of the tight financial situation but would have liked to give one for Capilouto's "extraordinary" work on facilities and undergraduate education.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports there was some constructive criticism from board members and the campus community citing the need for better communication during crises such as layoffs.

Former West Virginia University President David Hardesty prepared the evaluation report and was paid $9,000 for the work.
