Governor Matt Bevin made a big splash last Friday when he announced his plans to reorganize the University of Louisville’s Board of Trustees.
“The board as it exists right now is not particularly functional. Its dysfunction has precluded it from doing what its responsibility is and that is to be effective fiduciary leaders of the university,” Bevin said of his termination of the board’s current members.
Well, it didn’t take long to appoint a new board at the university, and we’ve obtained a list of eight of the new trustees.
It seems the new members are right in line with UofL’s mission.
