U of O board talks about more money for new leader

EUGENE — The University of Oregon's new, independent board of trustees is considering a big bump in compensation for a new university president.

The Eugene Register-Guard reports the board plans to start recruiting after the first of the year, and members are trying to figure out how to structure a package that might range from $600,000 to $800,000 a year.

The former president, Michael Gottfredson, was paid $544,000, including deferred compensation. He resigned in August, a little more than a month after the new board took over from the State Board of Higher Education.

Board members say they'll have to offer more to get candidates who might already be running an organization.

But a faculty representative on the board says administrators’ pay is rising faster than that for teachers and others.
