An annual survey of compensation at public colleges reveals that the University of Connecticut, while not yet in the top tier of public universities, ranks quite well when it comes to paying its president. UConn weighs in at #13 on the list prepared by the Chronicle of Higher Education. UConn, however, disputes the figure. The university says that the Chronicle ranking includes a $150,000 payment that Herbst will only be eligible for if she stays through the end of her contract in the summer of 2016. Herbst took home $588,000 last year, a nice payday but not the $738,000 in compensation that the Chronicle says she earned.
