The Chronicle of Higher Education has updated its executive-compensation package information with 2014 fiscal-year data on public-college presidents.
Two public-college presidents managed total annual compensation packages of over $1 million: Rodney A. Erickson of Penn State ($1,494,603) and R. Bowen Loftin of Texas A&M ($1,128,957). The median salary for presidents who served a full year was $428,250.
The median presidential pay for public colleges in 2014 was 50 times the median student tuition. Two presidents managed total compensation more than 100 times student tuition: Judy L. Genshaft of the University of South Florida (112.27) and John C. Hitt of the University of Central Florida (100.03).

According to the AFL-CIO Corporate Pay Watch, in the state of Indiana, the 2014 CEO to average worker’s pay ratio was 101:1 (for corporations in the Russell 3000) and 306:1 (for corporations in the S&P 500).
In the nation as a whole, the ratio (for corporations in the S&P 500) was 373:1, which surpassed the ratio for 2013 (331:1)—both of which were much, much higher than the ratio in 1980 (42:1).
The average CEO compensation of Russell 3000 companies in 2014 was $5,504,432. As it turns out, the industry with the highest CEO pay was Tobacco Products ($13,061,671), followed by Railroad Transportation ($12,526,083), Petroleum Refining ($12,502,981), Communications ($10,769,054), and Hotels ($10,058,029).
As for the Security and Commodity Brokers, Dealers, Exchanges, and Services industry (where financial institutions like Goldman Sachs are located), the average CEO pay was “only” $8,102,970—ranging from $105,295 (for Joe Mansueto of Morningstar) to $88,518,411 (for Mario J. Gabelli of Gamco Investors, Inc.).
Clearly, a large portion of the surplus workers create ends up in the pockets (and portfolios) of the CEOs of the nation’s largest corporations.
