Earlier this week, the Washington Examiner‘s Emily Babay reported that Georgetown paid President John DeGioia $911,613 in 2008.
DeGioia’s salary, which included a $150,000 retirement annuity and an allocation for University-provided housing, marks a 40 percent increase over the previous year when he received $642,582.
Babay’s story got us thinking—how much do other University employees take home? According to tax forms filed by the University, it was plenty.
In 2008, John Thompson III made $1,829,757, which made him the University’s highest-paid employee. However, Thompson’s salary was a far cry from the $2,007,508 he was paid in the 2008 fiscal year. (In previous tax filings, compensation was based on fiscal year.)
SFS-Qatar Dean James Reardon-Anderson, who more recently took over “Map of the Modern World,” pulled in $676,025, while Provost James O’Donnell brought home $394,509.
And the three men tasked with building Georgetown’s endowment—Chief Investment Officer Lawrence Kochard ($702,158), Chief Financial Officer Christopher Augostini ($458,497), and Office of Advancement Vice President James Langley ($452,895)—all made the list too.
But, don’t expect salaries to continue to rise in 2010. Last January, DeGioia announced a salary freeze for all senior executives.
Want to know who else is making tons of cash at Georgetown? We’ve got the run-down after the jump.

*The 990 tax form only reports the salaries of officers, directors, trustees, “key employees” and the top 5 highest paid employees who aren’t officers/directors/trustees/key employees. Because of those restrictions, it’s possible that unlisted Georgetown employees brought home more money in 2008 than some of those listed above. (If we had to guess, those unlisted employees include the likes of other deans and John Thompson Jr.)
