Youngstown State Board of Trustees meeting with university president concerning 'presidential employment'

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - Youngstown State University's public information officer tells 21 News a meeting tonight between YSU President Randy Dunn and the YSU Board of Trustees concerns "presidential employment."

The Southern Illinois University student newspaper, the Daily Egyptian, reports that Dunn is a front runner to become that university's next president. The SIU Board of Trustees is expected to announce their decision for president at 3 p.m. Eastern Time.

21 News is working to obtain a copy of Dunn's contract now, but earlier reports indicate he is under a three-year contract. Dunn has only held the office for 7 months.

Dunn cancelled an appearance this morning at YSU's annual "Crash Day" where he was expected to speak to potential future-students visiting the campus.

Sources tell 21 News Dunn will be working from home all day until the meeting with trustees tonight.

Attempts to reach him at home have been unsuccessful.
