Income of private-college presidents

The Chronicle of Higher Education has a rundown of the compensation private college presidents receive, and three Connecticut colleges are on the top 100 list.

Yale’s president Richard C. Levin is the 9th highest paid private-college president with compensation at $1.6 million. Quinnipiac University’s president John Lahey comes in 27th with $1.2 million and Sacred Heart’s Anthony Cernera 60th with $827,000

The report also lays out the differences between faculty and president compensation. Yale and Quinnipiac’s presidents earn eight times more than the average professor’s income.
