slides: Highest Paid College Presidents In Central Mass

Tuesday, December 11, 2012

 

Pay for private-college presidents remains high despite the poor economy and includes a lot more than just a base salary, new analysis by The Chronicle of Higher Education found. See which Central Mass presidents made the most in 2010.

All data was collected by The Chronicle from the IRS' Form 990, obtained either from the school itself or from GuideStar, which collects the nonprofit reports and posts them online.

Dennis D. Berkey

 

Berkey, who has been president and CEO of Worcester Polytechnic Institute since 2004, is the longest-tenured of the group and his pay reflects that as well. The $857,027 he brought in for 2010 was a 4.7 percent increase from the prior year and was enough to earn him the rank of 51st highest-compensated private college president.
 
Base pay: $521,727
Bonus pay: $165,000
Deferred compensation: $26,222
Nontaxable benefits: $69,145

Rev. Michael C. McFarland

The former Holy Cross president received $0 in compensation in both 2009 and 2010, according to The Chronicle's findings.

The analysis excluded schools that claimed a religious exemption from filing Form 990, but The Chronicle said that "Some religious-affiliated colleges offer little or no compensation to their executives as reported on their 990 forms."
