SOU President Gets Raise, Contract Extension
Southern Oregon University President Mary Cullinan's contract has been renewed for another two years and she got a raise that will boost her annual pay to $205,000. The Ashland Daily Tidings reports that the State Board of Higher Education approved the increase earlier this month.
Cullinan's salary is now fifth-highest of the seven presidents in the Oregon University System. In 2009, she took a voluntary pay cut during a budget crunch, making her the lowest paid among the university presidents in Oregon's system.
Cullinan has been at SOU for six years, making her the second-longest serving president in the system.
