MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A survey of salaries and benefits for public college leaders shows University of Minnesota President Eric Kaler is paid well above the national average compared to his counterparts.

The report by the Chronicle of Higher Education compares pay for more than 200 colleges and university leaders. Kaler receives $610,000 a year. The national average is $428,000.

Minnesota State Colleges and Universities Chancellor Steve Rosenstone gets base pay of about $380,000, plus $58,000 for housing and personal expenses.

Rosenstone ranks 122 of 227 nationwide. The Star Tribune (https://strib.mn/1Qi2RkA ) says Kaler ranks 30th among public college presidents.

The survey found that at more than half of the schools the president was not the highest-paid person on campus. In Minnesota, Gophers head football coach Jerry Kill was paid about $2 million last season.
