Tax forms show glimpse of administrative money

Recently released tax forms from 2013 offer a small view of the normally very private salaries received by university employees.
Unsurprisingly, then-President Patrick Harker was the school’s highest paid active employee in 2013, receiving $747,507 in salary. However, that number represents a decrease from his final compensation total in 2012 which was $851,078, including $205,000 in non-base salary compensation.
Harker’s salary was only eclipsed by former President David Roselle, who now serves as the Executive Director of the Winterthur Museum in northern Delaware. Roselle, who stepped down from the presidency when Harker was awarded the post in 2007, was given $892,000 in bonuses and incentives in 2012, along with almost $10,000 in non-taxable benefits.
Of the top 24 highest paid administrative members and deans at the school, nine were women while 15 were men. Monica Mane Taylor, vice president of university development, was the highest paid female, ranking fifth overall. Of those same top 24 salaries in 2013, four were black, and one, Lynn Okagaki, was Asian. Nobody of Hispanic descent appeared on the list.
The school’s highest paid dean in 2013 was George Watson, who is in charge of the School of Arts and Sciences. He was paid $305,343 for his work, with Babatunde Ogunnaike, dean of the College of Engineering, just behind at $298,934.
The forms also show that head football coach K.C. Keeler was the school’s third-highest paid employee in 2011, making over $459,000. His replacement, Dave Brock, who was hired after Keeler was fired in 2012, is not listed on the forms provided.
Edgar Johnson, who served as athletic director until 2009, was the highest-paid professor on campus in 2012, pulling in $515,735, as well as $456,642 in 2013 when he again ranked atop the professor pay scale.
That 2012 figure represented more than the actual athletic director at that time, Bernard Muir, who was receiving just under $400,000. Muir left in 2012 to take a job at Stanford University, and was replaced by current Athletic Director Eric Ziady.
