The top paid President of an institution of higher learning is a Black woman.
Shirley Ann Jackson, the president of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, N.Y, tops the list of highest paid college Presidents in the country at $1.6 million. 23 Presidents made more than $1 million according to a survey by the Chronicle of Higher Education.
Tailing Jackson on the list of top paid academia is David Sargent at Suffolk University in Boston, who made $1.5 million.
More college Presidents are expected to join the ranks of college President millionaires once the economy fully recovers.
I see you Shirley!
