Public versus private university presidents pay levels and structure

Economics of Education Review Volume 26, Number 3 ISSN 0272-7757 Publisher: Elsevier Ltd


Existing studies examine the determinants of private university presidents’ compensation, but ignore recent earnings differentials between public and private university presidents. This paper estimates that public university presidents earn approximately 50 percent less than comparable private university presidents. This salary discount is robust to controls for institutional and individual characteristics, and estimation technique.
