Heads of 4 colleges had sizable 2010 pay hikes

3 other presidents earned over $1m

Presidents at several private Massachusetts colleges saw significant pay increases between 2009 and 2010, according to a new survey of compensation by the Chronicle of Higher Education.

The annual review of presidents’ pay, which has sparked uproar over local leaders’ salaries in past years, shows that presidents at Bentley University in Waltham, Curry College in Milton, Endicott College in Beverly, and Hampshire College in Amherst all received compensation increases of at least 24 percent and as much as 37 percent in 2010, according to available financial data.
