These information present the overall compensation acquired by chief executives in two sectors: (1) public school and college methods, from the 2010-11 via the 2016-17 fiscal years, and within the 2018 via 2021 calendar years; and (2) personal schools, from 2008 via 2019.
All people who served as chief government throughout these durations, together with interim and appearing leaders, are included. Oftentimes, a couple of chief government served at an establishment throughout a given yr. Presidents who served lower than the complete yr are famous.
Compensation values for all workers replicate the compensation earned from the establishment (and related foundations) throughout a full fiscal or calendar yr, whatever the position or roles held by these workers in the course of the full yr.
Details about presidents’ tenures and prior employment had been obtained from school web sites, newspaper archives, or school places of work. Pictures had been obtained from school web sites.
The peer group comparisons use the U.S. Division of Schooling’s Built-in Postsecondary Schooling Information System, or Ipeds pre-selected friends for the “Ipeds peer group” and the establishment’s submitted listing of self-selected friends for the “self-selected group”. Solely establishments which can be in our assortment set for the present yr are included within the outcomes.
Establishments’ complete expenditures come from the U.S. Division of Schooling’s Built-in Postsecondary Schooling Information System, or Ipeds, and within the case of bills, are for the latest yr out there on the time the wage information had been gathered — normally the tutorial yr previous the compensation yr. These information are excluded for sure methods.
The Chronicle surveyed establishments to gather these public information. Our evaluation usually contains all public doctoral universities (nonmilitary service) in the US in addition to all state school and college methods or governing boards with at the very least three campuses or 50,000 complete college students enrolled throughout the system within the most-recent educational yr.
This evaluation doesn’t embody methods, state boards, or administrative departments that oversee solely technical or group schools, nor does it embody establishments in Puerto Rico. A restricted variety of system places of work report related information to Ipeds. Likewise, mentioned system places of work don’t report institution-relevant information, corresponding to common professor wage or tuition and costs, to Ipeds.
For chief executives who led a campus and system collectively, the Ipeds information to which their pay is being in contrast replicate information corresponding solely to the primary campus. Throughout the historical past of this mission, The Chronicle has requested establishments to submit the values of assorted forms of reportable compensation earned by their chief executives, from each the general public entity and any nonprofit organizations related to the general public entity. To seize a consultant and various pattern, The Chronicle’s methodology to reach at a universe of faculties to survey has modified over the past decade.
- From the 2010-11 via the 2012-13 fiscal years, the survey universe was based mostly on public analysis universities and affiliated methods with enrollments of at the very least 10,000, and universities with smaller enrollments that had been state flagships.
- From the 2013-14 via the 2016-17 fiscal years, the survey universe was based mostly on the methodology detailed above. To establish doctoral universities in these years, The Chronicle used the 2010 replace of the Fundamental Classification program, developed by the Carnegie Fee on Increased Schooling.
- Within the 2018 calendar yr and the years that adopted, the survey universe was based mostly on the methodology detailed above. To establish doctoral universities in these years, The Chronicle used the 2015 replace of the Carnegie Fundamental Classification program.
- For the 2013-14 via the 2016-17 fiscal years, we have now included on the profile pages of chief executives the names and titles of the 5 highest-paid workers at every establishment, as supplied by the establishments. For the 2018 calendar yr and the years that adopted, The Chronicle restricted the gathering of employee-compensation information to the three highest-paid workers.
- From the 2012-13 via the 2016-17 fiscal years, The Chronicle elected to gather information reflecting the reportable compensation earned by former chief executives within the interval following their closing yr as establishment chief. The Chronicle continued to request that data within the 2018 calendar yr and the years that adopted. The worth of nontaxable advantages shouldn’t be included within the sum of complete compensation for former chief executives throughout all respective years. The Chronicle requested establishments to reveal the worth of “non-payroll compensation” within the 2018 calendar yr and the years that adopted for chief executives who earned such compensation that yr.
Public-college compensation information will not be straight similar to information reported for personal nonprofit establishments. (For extra on private-college information, see beneath.) The Chronicle cautions in opposition to evaluating public-college compensation throughout varied years, given the modifications within the formulation used to calculate complete compensation, in addition to the change within the reporting interval from fiscal to calendar yr.

Some nonprofit schools don’t report the worth of their endowments to Ipeds, and people had been excluded from our evaluation. In 2015, The Chronicle tweaked a facet of its methodology, to incorporate establishments that primarily award baccalaureate levels or above. The 2018 Calender yr information revised the formulation once more to incorporate establishments based mostly on their expenditures fairly than endowments, and included solely these establishments with expenditures of $100-million or extra in expenditures.
Compensation information had been compiled from the Inside Income Service’s Type 990, which is filed by most nonprofit entities and are reported by calendar yr. Some personal nonprofit universities cite a non secular exemption from submitting the Type 990 and had been due to this fact excluded from our evaluation. The excluded establishments are Brigham Younger College- Idaho, Brigham Younger College- Provo, and Brigham Younger College-Hawaii.
Some Roman Catholic schools whose presidents are members of non secular orders pay no direct compensation to their chief executives, as an alternative allocating cash to the spiritual order. Compensation for these presidents could also be reported as $0.
Names and titles of “highly-paid workers” supplied for comparability are cleaned and clarified the place potential, in different instances they seem as they did on the universities’ Type 990s.
