The Maine Monitor has compiled the salaries of the highest earning employees at Maine’s private colleges and universities.

Only a few institutions had FY 2021 Form 990s released by the IRS as of Nov. 28 because the agency is experiencing delays in processing and releasing nonprofit filings. Forms were examined through the ProPublica Nonprofit Explorer.

To create a fair overview of all institutions, the FY 2020 filings, encompassing the 2019-2020 school year, were used by The Maine Monitor. The top three earners at each private institution were collected for the database, except in the cases of the Institute for Doctoral Studies in the Visual Arts and the Landing School of Boat Building and Design which did not report three high earners.
