The list of highest paid employees at Florida Atlantic University reflects the proverbial game of musical chairs being played by the university’s leaders this year.
The state university based in Boca Raton has 210 employees who made over $100,000 per year based on data from spring 2013, including 13 who earned over $200,000. That is significantly less than the big-time earners at rival state school Florida International University.

Mary Jane Saunders resigned as university president and is now a professor in the college of science. However, as the Sun-Sentinel reported in May, her salary will increase to $276,000 in the new job.
FAU is still seeking a permanent president.
