CARBONDALE, Ill. (AP) -- The man chosen to be the Southern Illinois University system's president soon may learn whether his Ohio employer will let him out of his contract earlier to start his new job.
The (Carbondale) Southern Illinoisan (http://bit.ly/1f8vp7A) reports Youngstown State University's governing board was to meet Wednesday over whether to waive a requirement in Randy Dunn's contract that requires him to give 180 days of notice that he's leaving.
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. Unless Dunn gets a contract waiver, he'll have to stay at Youngstown State until mid-August.
