Investigation of former dean prompts university’s actions

Amid a federal investigation into allegations that a former education dean mishandled a $694,000 federal grant, the University of Louisville is reviewing whether it needs to change its policies for overseeing such funds, according to President James Ramsey.

“This situation was a little unusual” in that it involved a program directed by the dean, Robert Felner, who also was in charge of employees involved in the day-to-day administration of the grant, Ramsey said in an interview today.
