The past decade for the state’s higher education has seen three trends: cuts to state funding, rising tuition, and growing salaries.
High atop the salary heap is UNH President Mark Huddleston, who took home $333,658 in 2011.
His salary is $34,000 higher than the chancellor of the university system, Ed MacKay, and vastly higher than the salaries of the presidents of the other colleges and university in the state.
Plymouth State University President Sarah Jayne Steen earned $200,618.52 in 2011. Keene State College President Helen Giles-Gee, who has since left the college, took home $211,687.86.
