College and Univ. Personnel Association, Washington, DC.
This report provides data on salaries, benefits, and perquisites commonly included in total compensation packages available to higher education chief executives, along with data on employment policies and practices, based on a survey of 1,012 institutions. An executive summary presents findings, observations, and historical trends. Data are then presented in 149 tables, categorized as follows: (1) chief executive compensation; (2) group and retirement benefits for chief executives; (3) perquisites for chief executives; (4) involuntary separation policies for chief executives; (5) profile of chief executive; (6) recruiting/relocation policies and practices; (7) employment policies and practices; and (8) profile of participating institutions. Among the findings are: the typical chief executive is 55 years old; 14 percent are women and 8 percent are minority group members; compensation varies according to such factors as institutional classification, affiliation, operating budget, endowment, enrollment, and number of employees; medical, life, disability and other forms of insurance and retirement benefits are provided by most institutions; the most popular perquisites include automobiles, housing expenses, and tuition reimbursement; approximately 43 percent of institutions have recruited a new chief executive within the last 5 years; and approximately 75 percent of institutions maintain a contractual agreement with the chief executive. Appendices provide a list of participating institutions and a copy of the survey questionnaire. (JDD)
