With the University of Louisville’s accreditation in the balance, the state legislature voted on Saturday to abolish the school’s board of trustees and create a new, smaller board, much like Gov. Matt Bevin tried to do last summer.
Lawmakers are still working to address Gov. Matt Bevin’s executive order that attempted to overhaul the University of Louisville’s governing board, though a scheduled hearing of the fix was delayed Wednesday afternoon.
A state audit of the University of Louisville Foundation found a president with too much unchecked power, numerous examples of broken bylaws and a “dysfunctional governing climate” at the school’s nonprofit.
After Gov. Matt Bevin appealed a ruling that blocked his overhaul of the University of Louisville board of trustees, Attorney General Andy Beshear has requested that the case be fast-tracked to the state’s highest court.
