President Jackson is the Top University President in Total Compensation in 2003

The Albany Times Union reports that Rensselaer President Shirley Ann Jackson has become the highest paid university president in the United States with annual salary, benefits, and other compensation estimated at $890,400. This estimate is published in the Chronicle of Higher Education's annual survey (details available only to subscribers).

The Times Union article quotes Claire Van Ummersen, vice president for the Office of Women at the American Council on Education, who said, "I'm just pleased to see a woman at the top of the list for a change.... I think she has been one of the most effective presidents that I've seen in a long while."

Members of the RPI community who were quoted include Board of Trustees Chairman Samuel Heffner, Honorary Trustee Harry Apkarian, and former Rensselaer president Roland Schmidt.
