Executive Compensation in California Public Higher Education, 1996-97. Higher Education Update.
California State Postsecondary Education Commission, Sacramento.
This report is the fifth in a series issued reviewing policies and compensation levels for public higher education and community college executives. The report presents summary information about community colleges for: chancellors and presidents of multi-college districts and superintendent/presidents of single-college districts. In its comments, the California Postsecondary Education Commission also notes that while disparity among multi-college districts has decreased over the last three years, it has increased among single-college districts. Also reported are compensation figures for systemwide executives. For the California State University, the report details current policy on executive compensation, compensation for campus presidents and systemwide executives, and salary comparisons between the State University and similar institutions nationally. In its comments the Commission notes continued progress toward a coherent compensation policy but lags in salary at the presidential level. For the University of California the report notes current policy, compensation for university chancellors and systemwide executives. It provides two sets of salary comparisons between the University and similar national institutions: an all-university set and a faculty salary set. The report notes that the University has completed its goal of equalizing benefits and of stabilizing executive compensation levels. Five tables summarize compensation data. (CH)
