Pay Differentials Revisited: CEOs and the Five Highest-Paid Employees at Private Colleges and Universities.
Tang, Thomas Li-Ping; Tang, Theresa Li-Na
This study compared the salary differentials of college chief executive officers (CEOs), college presidents, and the five highest-paid employees at 190 private colleges and universities. The pay differential in total compensation for CEOs and the highest-paid professor at liberal arts institution was significantly higher than that at doctorate-granting institutions, which in turn was higher than that at research institutions. The pattern of pay differentials was reversed for the highest-paid and second highest-paid employee at research institutions and at liberal arts institutions. Other differentials failed to reach significance across institutions. Implications concerning institutions' internal consistency and external competitiveness are discussed. (Contains 34 references.)
