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 2019, the University of South Australia’s Vice Chancellor had a salary package of $1.18m, while Flinders University’s Vice Chancellor was paid $1.17m. The salary of the University of Adelaide’s Vice Chancellor has not yet been disclosed.
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.
