Pharmacy school pays chief well
President makes more than Harvard, MIT heads
CHARLES MONAHAN JR. makes $1.3 million a year in total compensation, more than all but one of his presidential peers at other colleges in Greater Boston.
Monahan does not work at Harvard University, MIT, or one of the other big-name schools in the area. He’s president of the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences University, a Boston school serving 7,100 students.
Besides a pharmacy program, the school offers degrees in a variety of other disciplines including nursing, dental hygiene, and public health. Monahan, who has been president of the school for close to 20 years, holds an undergraduate degree from the college and ran a pharmacy before assuming the presidency.
Through his spokesman, Monahan declined requests for an interview.
Only the president of Boston University, Robert Brown, earned more than Monahan; he makes $153,000 more.
