This choice of private colleges and universities for this analysis is based off pay data from 2010 for college presidents compiled by the Chronicle of Higher Education. Because college presidents are typically the highest-paid employees at an institution, The Journal felt their pay would indicate the pay structure for the institution. President Elizabeth Stroble was the 184th highest-paid president out of 494 chief executives. The Journal examined the housing benefits for the institutions of the next 50 highest-paid presidents and the prior 50 highest-paid presidents.
