So you know all those people who have been calling for RPI president Shirley Jackson to take a pay cut in light of the barrage of layoffs at the Institute? Guess who was among them.
Would you believe Dr. Shirley Ann Jackson?
As first reported by RPInsider, the school's vice president for student life -- Eddie Knowles -- told a gathering of students Wednesday night that Dr. Jackson had requested a pay cut from the board.
But get this: the board reportedly denied the request. AOA confirmed this account with Jason Gorss, a manager in RPI's media relations department, via email. He was unable to provide any additional details about the size of the proposed salary cut or why the board denied it.
Shirley Ann Jackson's yearly compensation from RPI totals $1.3 million. That ranks her among the highest paid university presidents in the country.
