UofL board to consider status of campus president
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – University of Louisville trustees may be ready to decide the status of embattled school President James Ramsey.
The school’s new board of trustees has scheduled a special meeting on Tuesday. The agenda includes consideration of Ramsey’s offer to resign.
Perhaps foreshadowing the board’s action, another agenda item calls for “discussion of next steps, including transition planning and search process for next president.”
Ramsey has led the university for 14 years.
During his tenure, he has been credited with leading successful fundraising drives and helping boost the university’s academic standards for incoming freshman and its graduation rate.
But in the past two years, he came under increasing attack for embezzlement scandals and other campus embarrassments, including an FBI investigation of a top health care executive.
