Stan Carrizosa becomes president of College of the Sequoias in July While chief executive pay at public colleges and universities has risen in recent years despite sweeping cuts, trustees argue the pay is needed to retain and attract the most qualified applicants.
Last week, the College of the Sequoias Board of Trustees approved the $225,000 annual salary of Stan Carrizosa who will take over the position as the superintendent-president of the college on July 1.
Carrizosa is making $55,000 more than his predecessor, Brent Calvin.
COS officials argue that Carrizosa is being compensated for his dual role across three campuses.
"The superintendent-president position is really two different jobs and that's what Stan was hired t o do," said Greg Sherman, COS board president. "And as a superintendent, Stan definitely has the qualifications."
