Cal Poly’s president’s salary highest in the CSU
January 25, 2011
The California State University Board of Trustees approved a $350,000 yearly salary for incoming Cal Poly President Jeffrey Armstrong, making him the highest paid university president in the CSU system, at a board meeting on Tuesday night.
In addition to his salary, he is provided with housing.
Former Cal Poly President Warren Baker previously held the top paid president position at the CSU making $328,000 a year.
Meanwhile, Cal Poly has reduced its student body numbers because of budget constraints. At this time, university officials have not determined the number of applicants the university can admit in fall 2011, because the state will not provide budget numbers until February.
