The Maine Monitor has collected the most recently available compensation of the highest earning employees in the University of Maine System.

The top three earners at each of the eight institutions, and the System as a whole, were recorded for the database. Data was sourced from the System’s April 2023 Regular Employee Compensation Report.

Salary information is annual base salary, and includes stipends of at least one‐year duration. Other earnings such as overtime, overload teaching, and short‐term stipends were excluded from the data report, and likewise are not included here.
