TALLAHASSEE, FL -- A special committee of the FAMU Board of Trustees was held Tuesday afternoon to prepare for the presidential evaluation process.

The process is an annual check-up to look at day-to-day operations and how the administration is carrying out strategic goals. There is also a chance for feedback on the president's performance.

Officials say the evaluation process will give the trustees and the president a "clear understanding" of the expected contributions of the president and how they fit within FAMU's vision and mission.

They also will be looking to identify areas where the university excelled and areas where FAMU can improve.

This meeting comes amid a tense few months for the school's board and leader.

Last month during an emergency hearing, university president Elmira Mangum narrowly survived two votes that could have put her out of office and two trustees, including the chairman, have since stepped down.
