UofL trustees set to decide Ramsey’s status Tuesday

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — University of Louisville trustees appear ready to decide the status of embattled campus President James Ramsey.

The school said Monday its board of trustees is scheduled to convene a special meeting Tuesday. Topping the agenda is consideration of Ramsey’s offer to resign.

This will be the board’s third meeting since its formation last month, when Gov. Matt Bevin disbanded the former board amid turmoil over Ramsey.

Following a meeting last week, board Chairman Junior Bridgeman said he hoped trustees would act on Ramsey’s resignation at their next meeting.

Perhaps foreshadowing the board’s action, the agenda for Tuesday’s meeting includes “discussion of next steps, including transition planning and search process for next president.”

Adding to the uncertainty hanging over UofL is a lawsuit challenging Bevin’s authority to disband the former board.
