Incoming Western Washington University President Sabah Randhawa will earn $365,000 a year.
Western Washington University’s trustees on Tuesday approved a five-year contract to pay incoming president Sabah Randhawa a base salary of $365,000.
Randhawa, who will begin the job Aug. 1, will also earn deferred compensation worth $145,000 if he stays until July 2021, the end of the contract.
WWU will also provide Randhawa with an official residence, a house on Wildwood Drive owned by the WWU Foundation where the current president now lives.
Randhawa is currently provost at Oregon State University and was chosen by the trustees earlier this year to replace Bruce Shepard, who is retiring.
