BATON ROUGE - A Southern University spokesperson confirmed that board members chose not to renew the contract for Chancellor James Llorens of the Baton Rouge campus.
The Board of Supervisors made their decision behind closed doors Friday after a motion to extend the contract for a year.
"The Board thanks Dr. Llorens for his service and wishes him well. We will soon make decisions on the leadership direction for our main campus and continue the efforts of making Southern University great," said SU Board of Supervisors Chairwoman Bridget A. Dinvaut.
Llorens' last day as chancellor will be June 30, ending his three-year tenure with the university.
