NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — Old Dominion University's Board of Visitors has approved a two-year extension of President John R. Broderick's contract.
The university says in a news release that the contract will now run to 2017.
Old Dominion says several initiatives since Broderick became president in 2008 have enhanced its profile. They include creating an enrolled management plan, state-of-the-art facilities, the Business Gateway and the Climate Change and Sea Level Rise Initiative.
Board members approved the contract extension Thursday.
Rector David L. Bernd says Broderick has done an "exemplary job."
