The annual guide to university and college president's compensation was just listed by The Chronicle of Higher Education. Private school presidents generally make more than their public school counterparts.
For most art schools, the typical pay plus benefits for their presidents were between $225000 and $300,000 or so. Of all the art schools noted, only two were out of line.
The president of Art Center College of Design made $600,000, and the president of SCAD made OVER $1,000,000. In fact, Paula Wallace, the president of SCAD, made more than any of the presidents of any IVY school!
Interestingly, the article also lists total revenue for the school and total expenses. SCAD revenues exactly equaled their expenses at $140,000.000.
