Examined institutional characteristics and market- related factors to predict university presidents' pay, benefits, and total compensation at 190 private colleges and universities. Found that presidents' pay was related to the expenditures, type of institution, existence of professional schools, and academic reputation ranking, while benefits packages were unrelated to these factors. Results support application of agency theory to predict presidents' compensation. (Author/DB)
