Bath Spa university vice-chancellor paid £808k

Bath Spa university vice-chancellor paid £808k

A formal complaint has been made over the record-breaking £808,000 paid to the departing vice-chancellor of Bath Spa University.

Prof Christina Slade, 64, earned the bumper package - thought to be the biggest in the country - in 2016-17, her a year ago in the role she had held since 2012.

Her pay outstrips the £468,000 earned by Dame Glynis Breakwell, the University of Bath's vice-chancellor.

A Bath Spa spokesperson said that Professor Slade, a professor of media theory, had "stood down" as vice-chancellor last summer after "more than five years of distinguished service".

A spokeswoman for the university said the sum "was considered to represent value for money".

Sally Hunt, general secretary of UCU, said: "This simply can not be allowed to continue; we need an urgent overhaul of how senior pay and perks are determined, and how our universities are governed".

Prof Slade, who served as vice-chancellor until August, was also given a housing allowance of £20,000 and another £20,000 for "other benefits-in-kind". Labour peer Andrew Adonis, who has spearheaded criticism of the pay to vice chancellors, branded the package a "grade A" disgrace. It is equivalent to approximately eight per cent of the entire funding council grant to the university from Hefce for 2016-17.

Madeleine Atkins, Hefce's chief executive, replied on Wednesday to the organisation's critics over accusations it had failed to do enough to curb high pay among university leaders.

He said: "There should be an independent inquiry into top university pay and a cap of £200,000 on all university administrators' salaries".
