Heated discussion at U of L forum focused on money issues
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) — A discussion board to debate finances considerations and modifications on the College of Louisville turned confrontational Monday, when directors and educators balked at the potential for having to surrender cash they raised on their very own.
College of Louisville interim president Greg Postel convened the discussion board to debate upcoming modifications, and directors, school, employees and college students packed Floyd Theater to voice their considerations.
“What occurs on the finish of the yr? The central administration — the ‘they’ he is speaking about — comes alongside and takes no matter we did not spend,” stated Al Futrell, chairman of the varsity’s communication division.
Many division chairs are upset about being advised they will have to show over cash they raised on their very own. Some have been advised they will be allowed to maintain solely about 25 % of the cash they’ve generated.
“We generated this cash,” Futrell stated. “We now have nothing to do with the screw up on the central administration that brought about this $forty eight million shortfall.”
Postel says he inherited the varsity’s monetary issues and is making an attempt to repair them. And he says no cash has been taken from any of the departments.
