BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - LSU President and Chancellor F. King Alexander is getting a contract extension through 2020.

Outgoing LSU Board of Supervisors chairwoman Ann Duplessis said Friday that Alexander is leading the university in the right direction.

The New Orleans Advocate reports (https://bit.ly/1JfcIxD ) Duplessis said the board unanimously agreed to extend Alexander’s contract, following a performance evaluation. The extension is expected to be formally approved at next month’s board meeting.

Reading a prepared statement, Duplessis praised his work - on campus and off at the state Capitol and in Washington - saying he has the “steadfast and overwhelming support” of the board.

As LSU’s leader, Alexander makes $600,000 a year. Duplessis didn’t say whether his contract extension comes with a raise.
