At a time when staff in our state’s university sector are facing so much uncertainty, it’s appalling that Vice Chancellors are continuing to receive exorbitant salaries.
In 2021, the University of South Australia’s Vice-Chancellor had a salary package of $1.2 million, Flinders University’s Vice-Chancellor was paid $1.22 million, and the University of Adelaide’s Vice-Chancellor was paid $1.17 million.
The Greens believe Vice Chancellor salaries must be capped to ensure they are more in line with community expectations. Uni bosses shouldn’t be paid like corporate CEOs. We will be introducing a Private Members Bill to cap VC salaries at the same level as the Premier.
