CARBONDALE, Ill. (AP) – Randy Dunn will have to pay Southern Illinois University $250,000 if he leaves his new post within three and a half years.
That’s according to a report by The (Carbondale) Southern Illinoisan.
The newspaper says there’s a clause in Dunn’s four-year contract that requires him to reimburse the school.
Dunn is president of Youngstown State University in Ohio, but announced he was leaving after seven months. His last day on the job in March 21.
SIU Board of Trustees Chairman Randal Thomas says the money covers the cost of another presidential search.
SIU’s board last month hired Dunn to succeed Glenn Poshard, who has said he plans to step down from SIU’s helm at the end of June.
Dunn has said he expects to begin work July 1.
