Over the slightly more than 4 decades I taught, the salaries of college Presidents increased at a much greater rate than that of the Faculty.
In FL this certainly reflected the increased political role of the Presidents and of the System itself, and as even so-called "private" schools increased their research grants from various levels of Government. When we speak of Corporatism, the Schooling System, certainly the universities should be included as well.
