Michael Schill, the University of Oregon's incoming president, will be the highest-paid academic chief executive in the state when he starts work July 1.
Lesley Hallick, president of relatively tiny Pacific University, in Forest Grove, continues to lead the compensation pack among Oregon's private schools at $567,000, less than the $625,000 she made at last report.
John Kroger, president of better-known Reed College, makes about a third of that – although as a relatively new president, his figure is a partial-year salary.
These numbers and more appear in The Chronicle of Higher Education's annual survey of college presidents' compensation, a national count that presents an intriguing hierarchy locally.
