ASU's rising tide

Posted By on Fri, Aug 8, 2008 at 4:33 PM

The tide that liftedArkansas State University President Les Wyatt's compensation over $500,000, to the very top rank among Arkansas college administrators, doesn't seem to have lifted the little boats down below.

The Wall Street Journal reports on salaries of graduates of some 300 U.S. colleges and universities. ASU ranks 24th from the bottom in median salaries earned by new graduates (at $38,700 vs. UA at $44,100 and UA-Monticello at $39,200) and low in other rankings as well, such as 20th from the bottom at mid-career median pay of $63,300 (vs. $82,800 at UA and $74,500 for the Boll Weevils). Maybe the UAM chancellor should be knocking down 500 Gs, too.
