TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — The president of the University of West Alabama wants its board of trustees to investigate his claims that enemies tampered with an evaluation of his performance.

The Tuscaloosa News reports (http://bit.ly/1ojuI0k ) the university's board of trustees is scheduled to consider an extension of President Richard Holland's contract during its meeting Monday at the Livingston campus. Holland's contract ends Oct. 1 and he wants to stay on as president until 2016.

Holland released a 19-page report ahead of the meeting saying he wants an investigation into whether trustees and administrators hand-picked respondents to give negative feedback during a consultant's recent evaluation of his work as president.

Trustee Terry Bunn declined to comment on Holland's accusations, saying they would be dealt with "in the appropriate forum."
