Edison State College in Florida sets salary range for its next president, base pay will be between $211,080 and $316,620


Edison State College board chairwoman Ann Berlam

Unlike his predecessor, Edison State College’s next president will receive a base salary comparable to leaders at other similarly sized community colleges.

The new president’s base salary will range from $211,080 to $316,620, according to an 8-0 vote by the school’s board of trustees Tuesday. Edison, which hopes to choose from four presidential finalists June 1, set the salary range after facing criticism for paying former President Kenneth Walker an $832,000 compensation package at one point.

Walker, who ran the college for 21 years before getting fired in January for violating professional obligations of his contract, had a base salary of $322,400 plus benefits. At the time of his firing, Walker's total contract was worth $653,153 annually in salary and benefits, down from a high of $832,125 during in 2010-11.

Edison studied comparable colleges, such as Daytona, Indian River, Santa Fe and Tallahassee, and looked at national analysis from the College and University Professional Association for Human Resources to create the salary range. The average base salary for presidents at all of Florida’s colleges was $239,522.
