Yudof’s Salary Is Actually Kind of Reasonable?

Mark YudofWell, no. He may be sort of a standing joke [1] among the Cloggers (and many UCers), but at least his salary hasn’t hit 9 digits. At $783, 103, the Chronicle of Higher Education’s annual report places Mark Yudof seventh on the list of highest-earning executives at public universities [2].

At a staggering $1,818,911 per year, Ohio State University’s E. Gordon Gee earns the title of most highly compensated president. The information was taken from the fiscal year of 2009-2010 and the Chronicle differentiated between total compensation, which does not include provisions or retirement, and total cost of employment.

Lawmakers are not unaware of the inordinately high costs of these executives, but in order to keep quality leadership, they must be willing to pay the price. One Ohio senator describes it as a “throw-your-hands-up-in-the-air sort of sentiment.” Don’t think we aren’t a little bit understanding. If you’re gonna splurge for the buckwheats [3], then you kind of need to make the big bucks.
