College CEOs -- UPDATE



The New York Times and others today are reporting on a new survey of college president pay by the Chronicle of Higher Education. (Alas, you must be a subscriber to see the good stff.) Their pay has inflated tremendously -- relative to staff pay -- as is the case in private business. No, they're not up there with football coaches yet.

Perhaps there's a Chronicle subscriber out there who could provide the Arkansas-relevant data. Judging by the top pay listed in NY Times, our poor college leaders will be down the list.

UPDATE: Here's the data on the Arkansas public and private college leaders included in the Chronicle (not all were listed):
