Syracuse University Chancellor Nancy Cantor was among the 30 private college presidents who earned more than $1 million in 2008, according to an analysis by The Chronicle of Higher Educa-tion released Sunday.
The analysis included 448 pri-vate college presidents nation-wide and listed Cantor as the 14th-highest paid with a total compensation of $1,386,464. The Chronicle used the most recent
fi nancial data contained in the Internal Revenue Service Form 990 reports, which nonprofi t organizations are required to fi le each year. As recently as 2004, no college president had earned more than $1 million.
The report is done annually and looks at college presidents from institutions that have more than $50 million per year in expenditures. Institutions were classifi ed as either a large research university, a liberal arts college or undergraduate
and graduate college/univer-sity. In this years report, a few changes were made, making it diffi cult to compare salaries to past years. Despite the changes, presidents salaries are expected to continue to rise in the future as competition between univer-sities to hire or retain elite lead-ers heats up.
Last year the IRS where we fi le the form changed the rules, said Kevin Quinn, SUs senior vice president of public affairs.
In previous 990 forms, Quinn said, the compensation informa-tion the university provided to the IRS was during a university fi scal year, from July 1 to June 30. But for the fi rst time last year, it was based on a calendar year, causing data to overlap. The overlap from the 2007-08 fi s-cal year in this years Chronicle report caused Cantor to be near the top of the list for highest-paid college presidents, Quinn said.
Included in Cantors nearly $1.4 million compensation for
2008 is a one-time bonus of $500,000. The bonus was given to Cantor for the completion of her fi rst contract, which ran from 2004 to June 2008, he said. SUs Board of Trustees which is responsible for managing and protecting the universitys fi nancial resources awarded Cantor a new six-year contract through 2014 in June 2008, Quinn said.

A study beginning Thursday will look into potentially banning or phas-ing out water bottles on the Syracuse University campus.
This is a study. Its not like we want a ban or anything like that, said Alejandro Fernandez-Lovo, a project coordinator for the SU and State University of New York College of Environmental Science and For-estry chapter of the New York Public Interest Research Group, which is coordinating the study.
The announced study comes out of several weeks of NYPIRG listening to students concerns and opinions on the use of water bottles.
A Facebook page called Back to the Tap Syracuse University will host a survey beginning Thursday. The survey is open to students, faculty and staff and will include space for students to comment on how they feel about a phase-out of water bottles, the amount of bottled beverages they con-sume and their preferences for drink-ing fountains or bottled water.

When Elliott DeLine trans-ferred to Syracuse University this year, the computer sys-tem listed him as two people. One, Elliott L. DeLine, was female. The other, Elliott R. DeLine, was male.
When I fi rst came in, my transfer papers said I was female, said DeLine, a junior English and textual studies major. I dont know how they ever fi gured that out. I dont think Im still two people, I hope.
DeLine is transgender and transitioned from female to male two years ago, DeLine said. SU has generally been accepting and accommodat-ing of him as transgender, but small instances, such as the glitch in the computer system, show SU still has work to do to be fully trans-gender-friendly.
SUs LGBT Resource Center is recognizing the Transgender Day of Remem-brance, which honors those who have died because of violence against transgender
individuals. The weeklong recognition at SU culminates Thursday when people are encouraged to wear memo-rial ribbons and T-shirts.
The national Transgen-der Day of Remembrance is technically Saturday, and SU usually marks the day with a vigil at Hendricks Chapel. But remembering past vio-lence is only one piece of the day, so the LGBT Resource Center decided to eliminate the vigil this year, said Lauren Hannahs, a gradu-

Germany warns of terror attack Germany warned its citizens of an imminent terror-ist attack that could occur at the end of the month, according to The Wall Street Journal. German Interior Minister Thomas de Maizire said federal police and other authorities will increase security measures in public places. Last month, U.S. authorities disclosed information of terrorist sleeper cells in Europe that are close to being activated. Although Germany has received vague warnings about potential attacks, there is now evidence that the country is a target for a specifi c plot, according to The Wall Street Journal. The information was obtai
