Monsignor Stuart Swetland, a professor of Christian ethics at Mount Saint Mary’s University in Maryland and the only finalist remaining for the presidency of Seton Hall University, has withdrawn from the search amid leaks alleging that he was making significant salary demands, The Star-Ledger reported. Unnamed university officials told the newspaper that the would-be president proposed a salary of nearly $300,000 and a three-year severance package. Monsignor Robert Sheeran, the outgoing president, earns about $31,000 -- typical of the low pay historically awarded to Roman Catholic clergy serving as presidents. Monsignor Swetland, while not providing details, disputed the figures quoted by the newspaper.
