YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – As the Youngstown State University Board of Trustees planned for a 6 p.m. Monday meeting to discuss the employment status of President Dr. Randy Dunn, WKBN 27 First News obtained a copy of Dunn’s contract with the university.
The three-year agreement began July 15, 2013.
According to guidelines spelled out in the agreement, Dunn can get out of his contract in three ways: He can resign with a 180-day notice, but can request the board of trustees to grant him an earlier release. He can also be terminated by the board with or without cause.
If the board terminates the president’s contract without cause, the university will pay the president’s base salary for one year following the termination date, continue insurance benefits for one year, and continue retirement contributions for one year.
In addition, the university would not be liable for any loss of employment opportunities because of the contract termination. To read the full contract between Youngstown State University and Dr. Randy Dunn, click here.
WKBN 27 First News has been following reports that first surfaced in the student paper the Daily Egyptian saying that Dunn is a contender for the president’s position at Southern Illinois University. SIU’s board of trustees is expected to announce its pick Monday at a meeting scheduled for 2 p.m. central time. The paper goes on to name Dr. Dunn as, “the leading candidate for the position.”
