RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- The College of William and Mary's board has extended Richard Bland College President Debbie L. Sydow's contract through June 2019.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch ( ) reports that the board approved the extension on Friday so that Sydow can implement the plan. The extension doesn't increase her $250,000 base salary.

Sydow says the school's strategic plan includes increasing enrollment through new academic programs and activities.
