Cal State Rejects Call to Kill Plan to Hike Presidential Pay
California State University trustees on Tuesday rejected a request by a legislator that they hold off on a plan that would lead to significant increases in what some campus presidents are paid, The San Francisco Chronicle reported. The plan would group Cal State campuses by mission and enrollment, and then set salary ranges based on peer institutions. Those comparison groups would result in significantly higher salaries -- much to the frustration of student and faculty leaders, and many lawmakers. Trustees, however, say that they need to pay more to attract top talent.
