In response to legislative directive, this report presents information on the total compensation packages paid to CEO's, presidents, chancellors, and top level executives in California institutions of higher education for 1992-93 and the extent to which compensation compares to that earned by executives of similar institutions across the country. Following introductory materials on the legislative mandate, section 2 explores the roles and responsibilities of executives to provide a context for the discussion of compensation. Section 3 provides data on executive compensation in the California Community Colleges (CCC), indicating that the mean salary received by the system's 21 chancellors was $112,775, while that received by the 50 presidents of single-campus districts was $98,524. Section 4 provides compensation data for the California State University (CSU) system, indicating that the mean salary for the 20 presidents of the system was $120,075, plus assistance with housing expenses, a car or car allowance, benefits, and entertainment allowances of $3,600 per year. Finally, section 5 describes compensation for University of California (UC) chancellors as of January 1994 after elimination of a deferred compensation program, indicating that the mean compensation was $188,400, which also includes housing and automobiles or allowances and benefits. Sections 4 and 5 include comparisons of executive compensation in California to that in other states, indicating that State University presidents were paid 20.7% less than the average for 16 similar institutions nationwide and University of California's chancellors received 14.5% less than the mean for selected universities nationwide.
