UC Berkeley’s new $486,800 chancellor

Wednesday, November 28, 2012


Newly designated chancellor Nicholas Dirks was welcomed to campus with the usual pomp and circumstance yesterday. The Mercury News has a slide show of his speeches-and-marching band welcome.  But his $50,000 pay boost over predecessor Robert Birgeneau at a time of heightened austerity, tuition increases and reduced student services, not to mention open opposition from Gov. Jerry Brown, didn’t play well. State Sen. Leland Yee quickly said he’ll reintroduce a bill to restrict executive pay hikes at UC and Cal State campuses.
