Former UC Davis Chancellor Linda P.B. Katehi is going to teach one engineering course per quarter over the next nine months, and she's going to get paid $318,000.

$318,000 for one course per quarter!

Her first course this coming fall is a one-unit graduate seminar that's scheduled to meet 50 minutes every Friday. Davis officials said she will also conduct research, whatever that means. Details on what she'll be doing are still not available.

UC Davis spokeswoman Dana Topousis said:

“She’s a researcher, and part of her work as a faculty member is to do research at a research institution. I believe this schedule is common of top tier universities like ours.”

Last year Katehi resigned after months of controversy, ending in a four-month investigation launched by UC President Janet Napolitano that cost $1 million.

Katehi was granted a year of paid leave. 

In addition to her salary she will also get research funding of $150,000, which is not for personal compensation.

That money is supposed on a student to help her with scientific proposals, a student to help her put content online, research-related travel (hmmmm), and an open source website.

She gets all that money, and you're paying through the nose to send your kid to a UC.
