SEATTLE —

After five years of year-to-year contracts, the University of Washington Board of Regents has given UW President Mark Emmert a vote of confidence with a new five-year contract.

His contract contains some new perks, including a driver when he wants one and the chance to take a six-month sabbatical eventually, but Emmert is not getting a raise this year.

The Seattle Times reports Emmert's new contract also says the UW would pay him a lump sum of between $1 million and $2 million if the regents decide to fire him without cause. The regents also reserved the right to give him a raise next year.

Emmert receives $906,500 in total annual compensation from the UW and is the country's second-highest-paid public university president, behind E. Gordon Gee, of Ohio State University.
