Gwendolyn Boyd was recently appointed the first woman president of Alabama State University in Montgomery. Dr Boyd’s employment contract was recently made available and it includes the usual provisions on compensation, expenses, and duties. But the contract also includes an interesting provision.
The contract states that the president must live in the house provided for her on campus and “for so long as Dr. Boyd is president and a single person, she shall not be allowed to cohabitate in the President’s residence with any person with whom she has a romantic relation.”
In a statement to the Montgomery Advertiser, President Boyd wrote, “I can read, I read my contract thoroughly, I knew what I was signing and have no issue with it at all. The clause in question is not a personal imposition to me in any way.”
