In a unanimous vote at a recent meeting, the Alabama A&M University (AAMU) Board of Trustees voted to extend the contract of president Daniel Wims to December 31, 2030. 

Two trustees were not present at the time of voting. Wims assumed the AAMU presidency in January 2022 after serving as Provost and Vice President of Research and Sponsored Programs for 12 years.

“I am grateful to the Board of Trustees for entrusting me to continue to serve this institution, its faculty, staff, students and alumni. The collective commitment and dedication of our administrative team, faculty and staff is to be commended. As we continue to move forward, I am confident that our focused efforts for growth and success will be met with great enthusiasm and acceptance,” Wims said.
