Lots of interesting stuff to say about this. Powers makes $667k/year which is 17th in the country. Other Notables: Mike McKinney (ex A&M president): $1.9 million Gordon Gee (tOSU): $1.9 million Kent Hance (Texas Tech, general douchebag): $757k Also interesting to note that last year Powers oversaw $353 million in fundraising which is 4th in the country. I imagine fundraising is where a university president can make the biggest impact, so I think this is to his credit. Please correct me if I'm wrong. Plenty more to say about this; it's a worth a look.
