Florida A&M UniversityTrustees are still working on a three-year contract for Elmira Mangum, who is set to start her new job April first and have delayed approval of the contract.
Trustees don’t like annuity payments of 15 percent added on to Mangum’s salary. Those could be pared back to 10 percent. The group also wants changes to how much Mangum could receive if she’s fired. But some trustees seem to have particular trouble with Mangum’s $425,000 proposed salary; $84,000 more than what FAMU’s last full-time president, James Ammons, was making when he resigned.
