    I would like to know who sits on the body that approves of these outrageous pay packets. How much do they make, and who gives them the authority to hand out taxpayer money like that. I know of plenty of excellent executives in the federal government who have harder jobs and get paid far less.

    The President of U of A probably has so much money that she doesn’t even know how or where to spend it. It’s just one of those things where when you make this amount of money, there are only so many places where you can spend it. Plus, raising student tuitions when the university needs money and continuously having your salary increased isn’t going to change much. Such a selfish woman.

    What did they do to even deserve that much income? No wonder every year I receive a letter from U of A for donation, and that’s where my money went?! What a joke!

    Somebody has to stop this uncontrolled and corrupted environment that is affecting the present and future of an important academic institution, such as the UoA. With current budget restrictions, the first moral and realistic step should be to look after those fantastic salaries and to reduce those by at least 70%.

    Word is the President also had the U of A buy a house for her to live in on Saskatchewan Drive, nice deal if you can get it. Meanwhile the tuition fees keep rising. She makes more than the Prime Minister and I am not sure what she does, can’t even guess–keeps a low profile mostly.

    Outrageous that the chief executives scale has reaced these heights.
    Imagine, the President makes more money that the President of Harvard or Cal Tech, or U C Berkeley. On what basis? Surely not world rank (127) enrollement, or academic achievements. No, she is a good negotiator in the midst of a bunch of fools.
