Disbanded UofL board holds 1st meeting in months

The University of Louisville board of trustees that was disbanded by Kentucky’s governor and then resurrected by a judge is holding its first meeting in months.
    
The full 20-member board met on campus Thursday and had a cordial gathering to hear a report from the university’s acting president and discuss an accreditation review.
    
Board chairman Larry Benz welcomed the board members back after what he called "a long summer."
    
Members met in a ballroom in the campus alumni center instead of its usual meeting place in Grawemeyer Hall.
    
There was no mention of Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin or a pending lawsuit over Bevin’s creation of a new board with all new members in June.
    
The board’s finance committee meeting earlier Thursday discussed the operating budget and student housing rates.
