      Your perspective has been warped by thinking about administrative salaries. That’s generous for an assistant professor in my part of the pasture.

        It’s true that admin staff salaries are on the low side in Eugene, but a good C-level executive secretary for a big organization is easily $80K and worth every penny. On the other hand, the ad only asks for three years’ senior exec-level experience, which I find strange for this position. Comparisons with faculty salaries are apples and oranges.

    “service to the … external partners of the institution” means Nike, of course.
