Retreat pay a costly perk in UNC system

Dan Kane and Eric Ferreri of The News & Observer (Raleigh, N.C.) took a look at a little known perk for University of North Carolina administrators known as "retreat rights" that paid them as much as a full year's leave at their administrative salaries while they prepared for courses.  In several cases, the administrators left the the University or retired without returning to the classroom, yet they kept the retreat pay. "Over the past five years, taxpayers have paid about $8 million to 117 administrators who either returned to the faculty or left the university. In 24 cases, the payouts were for $100,000 or more."
