Ms. in-the-chips

— San Diego State University has been getting more than its share of bad ink lately, what with the campus drug raid last week. But at least one top SDSU executive has good news to report: a bunch of lucrative gigs on corporate boards. Of course, that may be a mixed blessing, considering the criticism leveled at UCSD chancellor Marye Anne Fox, who last December was forced to resign from the board of a North Carolina drug company after UC regents adopted a limit of three paid board seats for each campus head. The resignation left Fox still on the boards of Boston Scientific Corporation, chemical giant W.R. Grace and Co., and open-source software developer Red Hat Inc., along with six nonpaying nonprofits. Now comes San Diego State business school dean Gail Naughton, who reports getting paid between $10,000 and $100,000 from each of three outside positions: Aderans Research Institute of Georgia’s scientific advisory board, C.R. Bard of New Jersey’s board of directors, and the board of San Diego–based Sys Technologies. Naughton’s unpaid board seats, according to her annual disclosure report, include Ackerman Foundation of San Diego, DermTech International of San Diego, and L.A.’s City of Hope medical center.
