Executive Compensation in California Community Colleges, 1995-96.
To assist the California Community College's Board of Governors in a search for a new chancellor, the Chancellor's Office (CO) undertook a study of the compensation of the chief executives of system districts and colleges. Data were collected from the CO's Management Information System and telephone calls to district offices. Total compensation was defined as annual base salaries as well as any stipends for extra education and duties, such as a doctorate or service in dual positions. Three organizational configurations were found to exist in the state's community colleges: 19 were multi-college districts administered by chancellors, 54 were colleges in multi-college districts administered by presidents, and 52 were single colleges in single-college districts administered by superintendents or presidents acting as chief executive officers. Study findings included the following: (1) the highest total compensation for a chancellor of a multi-college district was $145,000, while the lowest was $109,000; (2) the total compensation of the 54 presidents of colleges within multi-college districts ranged from $119,974 to $81,624, with an average of $96,464; and (3) the highest compensation received by a superintendent or president of single-college districts was $156,126, the lowest compensation received was $83,000, and the average was $103,492.
