According to a study done by the Chronicle of Higher Ed, Oregon's private college presidents are underpaid when compared to their counterparts.

Compared with pay for presidents at the dozen or so most similar universities, all the presidents of major private colleges in Oregon except one earned below-average wages in 2011, the Chronicle found.

The exception was Pacific University President Lesley Hallick, who was paid $560,000 in 2011, making her the 141st highest paid private college president in the nation, the Chronicle found. She earned a base salary of $345,000 plus $215,000 in other pay that year, the higher education news source reported.

According to another study by the Chronicle of Higher Ed, Oregon's top-paid public university president out-earns Hallick and the rest of the private university field. Oregon State University President Ed Ray was paid $590,000 in total compensation in 2011-12.
