Alabama A&M president under review

Alabama A&M president under review

Members of Alabama A&M's Board of Trustees remain tight-lipped about the future of university president Dr. Robert Jennings. The members met behind closed doors Saturday for what was announced as an open meeting to the public.

WAFF 48 investigator Georgi Bragg has the following story:

After a 17 month tenure, Dr. Robert Jennings was evaluated by Alabama A and M's board of trustees. His first review was held Saturday at a Marriott Hotel in Birmingham.

That meeting was supposed to be open to the public; but, for an hour and a half, board members discussed Jennings' review behind closed doors.

It was closed because the discussion centered around good name and character.

While state law allows for boards to meet privately about those matters, other discussion is required to be open to the public.

Until Jennings is presented with the findings of the review, details will not be made public.

That could come as soon as June 22, when the board is scheduled to meet again.
