Are College Presidents Paid Too Much? NAS's Herb London Weighs In

Ashley Thorne

NAS board of directors vice-chair Herb London appears today in a short Minding the Campus podcast discussing the question of whether some college and university presidents are paid too much. Herb opines that some presidents may deserve the high salaries they receive, but often their income can hurt morale at a university if faculty members perceive it as unfairly extravagant.
