USM chancellor deserves a bigger cut in pay | READER COMMENTARY

In happier fiscal times, University System of Maryland Chancellor Jay A. Perman places a leaf on a sculpted tree last year as part of the renovation of the Community Engagement Center at the University of Maryland, Baltimore where he served as president.

University System of Maryland Chancellor Jay Perman’s 10% pay cut is a pitifully inadequate response during this time of crisis and pales in comparison with other academic executives who are taking between 20 and 25% pay cuts (“University System of Maryland chancellor takes pay cut, warns employees could ‘share in the pain’ of pandemic,” Sept. 9).

With a bloated annual salary of almost $1 million, Mr. Perman is hardly showing leadership and self-sacrifice as he warns staff that there will be pay cuts and layoffs. His actions reflect the widespread greed in our society and are a grim reminder that America’s greatest generation is long gone.
