The Southern University Board of Supervisors  voted  today not to renew the contract of James Llorens, Southern University Baton Rouge Chancellor, which expires June 30, 2014.

“The Board thanks Dr. Llorens for his service and wishes him well. We will soon make decisions on the leadership direction for our main campus and continue the efforts of making Southern University great,” said SU Board of Supervisors Chairwoman Bridget A. Dinvaut.

Llorens was named chancellor of Southern University Baton Rouge in May 2011, the largest of the five-campus Southern University System, the only historically black university system in the U.S.
