Utah Valley University Releases Salary Of Incoming President

Utah Valley University in Orem, Utah.

Utah Valley University's first female president will start on Sept. 16, with an annual salary of just under $300,000.

The institution has released details about the position soon to be filled by Astrid Tuminez. She is leaving a job with Microsoft as regional director for corporate and legal affairs Southeast Asia to take the position in Orem.

The presidential position comes with a housing allowance of $21,300 a year, which Tuminez can use to rent the university-owned home where previous presidents have resided. The school will also pay for her car and moving compensation from Singapore.

She will replace Matthew Holland, who left to serve as a mission president for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in North Carolina.
