Bucknell president agrees to contract extension

(Lewisburg) -- Bucknell president John Bravman has agreed to a contract extension with the central Pennsylvania university through 2020.

Financial terms of the extension were not disclosed in a statement this week.

Bucknell Board of Trustees chair Ken Freeman praised Bravman for leading fundraising efforts and new building projects on the Lewisburg campus of the selective liberal arts institution.

Freeman also cited how Bravman handled an investigation this year in which the university said former school officials had inflated students' average SAT scores.

Bravman's subsequent disclosure in part inspired an anonymous alumni donor to pledge a $10 million gift as a show of support.

Bravman arrived at Bucknell in 2010.

His original contract ran for five years.

Bravman was previously vice provost at Stanford University.
