Chancellor James McCormick’s earnings totaled $429,172 for the fiscal year that ran from July 1, 2011 to June 30, 2012. His successor, Steven Rosenstone, was also in the top ten after earning $320,000.

The rest of the top ten includes two college presidents: Minnesota State University, Mankato president Richard Davenport earned $304,514; and St. Cloud State University President Earl Potter made $303,263.
