Florida A&M University President Elmira Mangum is on the verge of getting ousted from her job.
The FAMU board is expected to vote Thursday on whether to ask Mangum to step down as president immediately.
Under a proposal worked out with Mangum's attorney, she would continue to receive her $425,000 a year salary as president until March 31 of next year. Mangum would then be eligible for a year-long sabbatical and would have the option to return to the university as a tenured professor.
University trustees earlier this year refused to extend Mangum's current contract.
Mangum's two years have been turbulent and marred by power struggles with trustees. She was hired initially as a "change agent" who could help FAMU restore its reputation after the November 2011 hazing death of Marching 100 band member Robert Champion.
