To the editor

I last wrote to Inside UVA when I heard that Mr. Gillen received a $2 million buyout from the University. I now write since I have heard that Mr. Groh, who I am sure is an honorable man, is receiving an annual salary of $1.7 million (and am assured that this is the going rate).
As a mere member of the faculty of the University of Virginia for 25 years, I find these sums, well, nauseating — and I don’t care what “the going rate” may be. Two million dollars endows a chaired professorship in the lowly College of Arts & Sciences. The University could not make clearer where its priorities are.
Jenny Strauss Clay, Professor of Classics
