LSU board holds 'evaluation' of university president F. King Alexander

The agenda only listed an evaluation of “the President” and other personnel,” though it did not name those people, along with a "self-evaluation" of the board.
F. King Alexander, the president of LSU, earns north of $600,000. The board reported favorable feelings when his performance was evaluated in October 2018. His contract was also renewed for another handful of years.
