UofL board delays meeting to consider status of president

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – University of Louisville trustees have postponed a meeting to decide the status of school President James Ramsey.

The school’s board of trustees had scheduled a special meeting on Tuesday. The agenda included consideration of Ramsey’s offer to resign.

About an hour before the meeting, the school announced the meeting had been postponed, and the date of a rescheduled meeting would be determined soon.

The school says there are no changes to the agenda.

Another agenda item had called for “discussion of next steps, including transition planning and search process for next president.”

During his 14-year tenure, Ramsey has led successful fundraising drives and helped boost the university’s graduation rate. But he came under increasing attack for embezzlement scandals and other campus embarrassments, including an investigation of a health care executive.
