Since Ora Hirsch Pescovitz was announced as Oakland’s seventh president, the Oakland University Board of Trustees has negotiated a contract with her. The contract lists the responsibilities, benefits and salary that Pescovitz will receive during her five year term. Aside from her salary, Pescovitz will also have a car and live in Sunset Terrace.

In comparison to Michigan’s other 13 public university presidents, Pescovitz’s salary will be leaning toward the higher side of what most university presidents in Michigan make. The following is a list of 14 out of 15 public university presidents in Michigan as well as their yearly salaries. Lake Superior University was not included due to the recent death of the university’s president.
