If we break the numbers down, this means that incoming CSU Fullerton President Mildred Garcia is set for a $324,500 salary. According to NBC Bay Area, her predecessor made $295,000. Then you have CSU East Bay President Leroy Morishita with a salary of $303,660, which is 10 percent above what the previous president made.
And don’t forget the extra monies for a housing and car allowance that aren’t included in the final figures.
Depending on Gov. Jerry Brown’s tax proposal in November, the CSU system is planning to stop all new student enrollment for Spring 2013. That means, barring a handful of community college transfers, there would be no new admissions next Spring.
So while tens of thousands of students are being rejected from CSU’s because there is no room or money to cover them, CSU presidents are seeing even bigger paychecks than ever.
With all the money coming from the same pot, it’s a wonder why they keep throwing money at high-paid executives while the students bear the brunt of the budget cuts.
