After deciding not to seek a third term as president, Chakma’s tenure ends June 30.

The university’s Sunshine List spans more than 27 pages, with roughly 14,000 names. There were 14 people who made more than $300,000 in 2018.

Provincial legislation requires public institutions to disclose which employees earn more than $100,000 in a year.
