The Florida A&M University board of trustees has voted to give President Larry Robinson a 3.5 percent raise, a 17.5 percent bonus and to extend his contract for another year. Under the State University System regulations, the board of trustees can only extend the president’s contract for 12 months. In August, the trustees gave Robinson a 4.48 out of 5.0, or an above-average rating on his annual evaluation.
“I am honored and humbled to serve as the twelfth president of Florida A&M University and truly pleased that the board of trustees has allowed me to continue in this role. I look forward to working on our ascension to becoming one of the Top 100 universities in the nation with student success leading the way,” Dr. Robinson said.
A year ago, board gave Dr. Robinson a 4 percent raise and a 15 percent bonus. Robinson earns $436,436 annually, according to university officials. He was appointed president of the university in November 2017.
Dr. Robinson is a summa cum laude graduate of the University of Memphis. He earned a Ph.D. in nuclear chemistry from Washington University in St. Louis.
