POLL: Should CSU and UC President’s Receive a Raise?

According to an article in the San Diego Union Tribune, CSU and UC presidents and high ranking executives are about to receive a two percent increase in pay, which marked the second increase in pay for these administrators since November. Keep in mind that prior to this, the presidents hadn’t received a pay increase in seven years. San Diego State University President Elliot Hirshman was the highest paid CSU president (with a salary of $412,000) and his increase will result in a salary of $420,240 for the 2015-2016 school year. These figures bode the question, should the presidents and administrators of our state college system be receiving pay raises when student tuition is already so high that almost no one can afford an education without become severely indebted?
