Three of the highest-compensated private college and university presidents in 2011 were at the helm of Massachusetts schools, according to a survey released Sunday by the Chronicle of Higher Education.

In 2011, the presidents of Northeastern University in Boston, Tufts University in Medford, and Amherst College all received hefty compensation packages worth more than a million and a half dollars. Each had his pay bolstered by big, one-time retirement benefits, a source of recent controversy at other schools.

Northeastern University’s president, Joseph E. Aoun, received $3.1 million in total compensation, more than every other college and university chief except the president of the University of Chicago, Robert J. Zimmer, who had total compensation of $3.4 million.
