University of Louisville board resets meeting on president

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

The school’s board of trustees had scheduled a special meeting for Tuesday, but about an hour before the start time announced it was postponed until Wednesday.

The school says there are no changes to the agenda.

During his 14-year tenure, Ramsey has led successful fundraising drives and helped boost the university’s graduation rate and academic standards for incoming freshmen.

But he came under increasing attack for embezzlement scandals and other campus embarrassments, including an investigation of a top health care executive.

One agenda item calls for “discussion of next steps, including transition planning and search process for next president.”
