These economic times have been rough on everyone, and even PrezBo’s checkbook is feeling a really tiny bit of heat. According to the Chronicle of Higher Education, Bollinger took home a sweet $1,380,035 in total compensation during fiscal year 2008. The Chronicle reports that Bollinger’s “pay is $878,975. Benefits include credits for supplemental retirement income that are based on performance and subject to vesting.”

The number is $40,000 (~3%) decline from his total last year of $1.42 million, and his base pay has declined slightly as well. But PrezBo remains the sixth-best compensated private college president in the country, and first among Ivy League presidents (second is Penn’s Amy Gutmann, with a total of $1.23 million). Then again, looking at our fellow Ivies’ endowment troubles, maybe he deserves a few chunks of change.

    Any graduates taken Stuart Firestein's class called "Ignorance"? If so, care to write a CULPA review about it so we can see what it's about?

  4. hello

    A $40K pay cut is 3%, not 0.3%.

    Also, it's worth noting that these figures are for the period from 7/1/07 thru 6/30/08. It's not clear how much, if at all, the economic downturn affected presidents' salaries during that period. Next year's figures should be interesting.
