City College of San Francisco's special trustee abruptly quashed a resolution last week that would have handed big raises to administrators, saying, "It was never the intent that any administrator was to receive a salary increase." Yet the college's three vice chancellors, all recently hired, are being paid 10 to 13 percent more than the salaries posted for those jobs, records obtained by The Chronicle show.
see the SF Chron article: here.

and on the second page of that article, note:
While they aren't defending their handling of the executive pay issue, they said through Kamer, the spokesman, that the size of the vice chancellors' paychecks is actually a good thing.

When the accrediting commission evaluated City College in 2012, it found that the school had pared administrators down to skeletal levels and that many were doing two or three jobs. The commission and a group of independent financial analysts told City College it needed permanent and effective leaders.

"It says a great deal about the future of City College that we can attract top talent" like the three vice chancellors, Kamer said. "Given City College's current circumstances, we could not have attracted such talent under the old salary ranges."
