PULLMAN, Wash.--The Washington State University Board of Regents voted to extend the contract of WSU President Elson S. Floyd until 2021.
Dr. Floyd requested that his compensation remain unchanged Monday. His contract was originally set to expire in 2016.
Board Chair Connie Niva said the extension was a result of Floyd’s exemplary service to WSU and the state.
“I think it is obvious to everyone who has had the pleasure of working with President Floyd that his impact extends well beyond Washington State University to higher education across the state,” said Regent Scott Carson. “Extending his contract is important for us, but also for all the people of the state.”
Floyd started at WSU in May 2007.
