The Arizona Board of Regents will decide if Arizona State University President Michael Crow and University of Arizona President Ann Weaver Hart get six-figure merit bonuses.
Board members are scheduled to vote Friday on whether Crow gets up to $150,000 in performance incentives. That would bring his total compensation and benefits to about $1 million for fiscal 2015.
Hart could get a $115,000 incentive for total compensation of nearly $754,000.
Northern Arizona University President Rita Cheng is up for a $40,000 bonus on top of more than $520,000 in salary and benefits.
Cheng will be eligible for a six-figure bonus if she meets a series of goals in 2017.
It's the third year presidents of Arizona's three state universities have been eligible for performance incentives as part of their contracts.
