Press Clipping: UCLA Daily Bruin article about SG Salary Survey
This article about the Student Government Salary Survey appeared in the UCLA Daily Bruin.

Student leaders are often compensated

From full tuition to annual salaries topping $10,000, universities across the country are offering student government leaders compensation for their efforts.

Student Leader magazine recently surveyed 150 public and private universities; of those, 88 percent gave some type of compensation to student government leaders.

Schools offer stipends, scholarships and cash so students can concentrate on student government without having to worry about part-time jobs, said Butch Oxendine, editor of Student Leader. Paying students also increases interest and professionalism, he said.

At the University of South Florida, top student government members are paid $10,937 a year. Student leaders never lose sight of their loyalties, university officials said.
