U Of L Will Try To Extend Ramsey's Contract

University of Louisville President James Ramsey may have his contract extended.

Ramsey’s current contract expires in 2012. At Thursday’s Board of Trustee’s meeting, trustee Marie Abrahms proposed the school extend Ramsey’s contract.

“We wish to have the president remain here sufficient time to make progress and or complete some of the work he has already begun,” she said.

The measure passed and now the board’s executive committee and the faculty senate will begin working on Ramsey’s contract. Ramsey says he didn’t ask for an extension, but he is open to the idea of staying at the school.
