The University of Oregon’s presidential pay may lag behind that of other similar universities but the generous benefits go a long way to making up the difference, according to a consultant’s report.
The UO’s existing presidential salary of $458,484 annually places it near the bottom of the pack for 17 comparable universities, according to figures presented by a Mercer executive pay consultant to the UO Board of Trustees on Wednesday.
But the president’s total remuneration — including deferred compensation and retirement benefits — hoists the UO to the middle of the pack, at $587,530.
By comparison, the University of Arizona president’s salary, at $494,950, is greater than the UO president’s. But total compensation at Arizona is a hair less, at $580,450, Mercer’s figures show.
