Executive Compensation in California Public Higher Education, 1998-99. Higher Education Update.
California State Postsecondary Education Commission, Sacramento.
This report presents findings and recommendations of the California Postsecondary Education Commission concerning compensation for executives of the University of California, California State University, and California community colleges. The report focuses on changes in the policy or compensation levels from 1997-98 to 1998-99 and addresses each of the institutions separately. For community colleges the report shows trend and range data for chancellors of multicollege districts, college presidents in multicollege districts, and superintendents/presidents in single college districts. It notes increasing disparities among community colleges because each of the 71 community colleges is responsible for setting the compensation of its own executives. For the California State University the report also provides trend data and comparisons with similar institutions nationally. It notes progress towards implementing a coherent executive compensation policy and a continuing lag in salaries at the presidential level when compared to similar institutions nationwide. For the University of California the report notes the policy of setting the average compensation at the mean of national comparators, while being flexible in the actual levels paid to each chancellor. The report notes continuing progress in simplifying executive compensation policies and in offering equity in benefits. (DB)
