PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) – Brown University’s president will continue to lead the school into 2025.

The Ivy League school in Providence said Tuesday that its governing body unanimously approved the early extension of President Christina Paxson’s appointment for an additional three years, to June 30, 2025.

The governing body cited Paxson’s “record of transformational impact” over eight years as president in its decision to extend her tenure more than two years before her current term expires.

The university didn’t disclose the contract’s salary terms.

Paxson developed the university’s 10-year strategic plan that launched in 2014.
