The University of Louisville’s Board of Trustees plans to hold a vote on members’ confidence in university president James Ramsey at its next meeting in April.

University of Louisville President James Ramsey publicly confirmed Thursday that the university is in talks to receive a large monetary gift — said to be $6 million — from Papa John’s International CEO John Schnatter and the Charles Koch Foundation.

The University of Louisville has announced it will hire a firm to look into the school’s financial management.

The board’s decision Thursday is a response to allegations by the IRS that a high-level employee wrote himself checks in excess of $2 million.

U of L spokesman Mark Hebert says the firm will review all internal audits for the past several years, review personnel with financial responsibilities and recommend whether more oversight is needed.
