The Berkshire Eagle reports that “… a new survey puts Williams College’s Morton O. Schapiro ninth on the list of top-paid leaders at private schools that primarily award bachelor’s degrees. Schapiro’s compensation for the 2006-07 academic year was $514,744, including $62,729 in deferred compensation benefits, according to the Chronicle of Higher Education’s annual survey, released yesterday. Schapiro’s compensation total for the previous year was $474,518….”

Do I see both an excellent opportunity for leadership and a bit of a cost-cutting or hold-the-line possibility here?

Another interesting note: Rep. Grassley (he of the move to force more take down of endowments; I guess we already took care of that, unintentionally) was all over the rise in college presidents’ compensation.
