Dartmouth Last in Presidential Pay

The Chronicle of Higher Education has released its annual survey of academic executive compensation (searchable here). Dartmouth’s James Wright ranks last in the Ivy League, with a total compensation of $460,238

Penn: $934,922
Yale: $715,212
Cornell: $675,027
Columbia: $638,250
Brown: $575,859
Princeton: $564,619
Harvard: $554,098
Dartmouth: $460,238

Note, though, the lack of correlation between executive pay and academic presige (Cornell vs. Harvard). Perhaps this is one issue where the Wright administration is on the right track.
