SAN FRANCISCO (CBS/AP) — The trustees of California State University approved 10 and 9 percent salary increases Tuesday for three new campus presidents, including San Francisco State’s new president.
The board’s action marked the first under its controversial executive compensation policy adopted in May after a firestorm of criticism over presidential pay during a period of drastic belt-tightening caused by state funding cuts.
The board set a raise cap of 10 percent, but stipulated that the amount of the raise must be paid for by campus foundations.
The board approved a $324,500 salary for Diane Harrison at CSU Northridge, $319,000 for Tomas Morales at CSU San Bernardino, and $325,000 for Leslie Wong at San Francisco State. All receive a $1,000 monthly car allowance.
Harrison receives free campus housing. Morales and Wong each receive a $60,000 annual housing allowance.
