"Being at a state institution, you will always be making less. The equivalent positions in the private sector pay around $90-125,000 per year. It is hard to say at the University as I didn't check what others were making at the school. I would say at my responsibility level, I was in the top 25%. If you are in a position with responsibilities on more than one campus, I would say you would be in the 50-75%."
