Since Virginia Tech is in the process of finding a replacement for retiring president Dr. Charles Steger, we checked his 2012-13 compensation package to see what the next university president might expect.
Here's what we found:
Base salary (covered by taxpayers): $184,919
Private supplement (paid by the Virginia Tech Foundation): $311,769
State bonus (all eligible state employees received 3 percent bonus): $14,900
Annual performance bonus: $24,834
Additional one-time bonus: $30,000
Deferred compensation: $253,575
VRS Restoration Program: $13,436
Auto allowance: $20,000
Steger will stay on until the university finds its 16th president.
A search committee has been named. The school also hired a private search firm to help.
