This infographic lists a few of the largest offenders, including Dennis J. Murray of Marist College, who makes $2,688,148 per year, Amy Gutmann, President of the University of Pennsylvania, who makes $2,091,764 per year, and Ronald J. Donald, President of Johns Hopkins University, who makes just over $1.8 million per year.
42 private college Presidents make upwards of $1 million dollars per year. If we combined these salaries, they would be enough to book 240 tickets to space with Virgin Galactic, buy books for 93,000 students, and purchase 43,000 used cars.
Additionally, University of Chicago’s Robert J. Zimmer makes eight times what the average private college President earns; Zimmer also receives free housing in Chicago, one of the most expensive cities in the U.S.
