Ever wonder how much money universities pay their top employees?
Wonder no more!
Here is the list for Arizona State University at the end of its most recent academic year:
Are these salaries justified? Note that 2 of the top 5 people listed are no longer with ASU, former head football coach Dirk Koetter, and former men's basketball coach Rob Evans.
I will also point out that 3 of these 20 people are women, and that there are no women in the top 10. It would appear that there is a glass ceiling at ASU.
A very wasteful glass ceiling.
This information along with the fact that tuition is increasing at a rate much higher than inflation shows that the Arizona legislature needs to do more to funnel more money into higher education to relieve the burden off of the students and to do more to regulate salaries such that ASU remains competitive but also wastes much less money.
