New interim assistant vice president of human resources announced Monday, Aug 12 2019 

By Matthew Keck–

University of Louisville President Neeli Bendapudi announced in an email that John Elliott resigned as interim assistant vice president on August 12.

Elliott will maintain his role as chief human resources officer at U of L Physicians and U of L Hospital. He has served both of these roles since July 2017.

“This move will allow John to focus on his important role as chief human resources officer at U of L Physicians and U of L Hospital,” said Bendapudi in the email. “John led the U of L HR operation during a time of great transition, and I thank him for his service.”

She also highlighted Elliott’s transformation of human resources into a unit that focused on employee rewards and professional development.

Mary Elizabeth Miles will serve as the interim assistant vice president for human resources, effective immediately. Miles is currently the director of employee relations and compliance and has worked at the university since December 2010.

Bendapudi said that she expects a smooth transition under Miles’ new leadership. “I am looking forward to working with Mary Elizabeth in the interim, and I will update the campus community on my plans for the permanent position later this semester,” said Bendapudi.

Bendapudi closed the email by saying that she is giving herself time to engage with shared governance leaders before making a final decision.

U of L trustee is alleged source in stripper scandal Monday, Aug 12 2019 

By Matthew Keck and Gabriel Wiest

During a deposition on July 26, David Grissom testified that former University of Louisville President James Ramsey told him that a board of trustees member was the source of funds for the strippers in the Katina Powell scandal.

The allegations could not have come out at a worse time, as U of L is awaiting a NCAA ruling on title I violations that could affect the basketball program.

Ramsey’s attorney, Steve Pence, denied these claims and said that Ramsey has no reason to believe anyone on the board was behind that funding.

U of L spokesman John Karman said the university cannot comment since this is part of an ongoing litigation.

In a video deposition Grissom said, “He (Ramsey) told me that one of his board members was the cash source for paying off the strippers in the stripper incident.” He then went on to say, “He never disclosed that to the full board.”

This comes as U of L has filed a lawsuit against Ramsey claiming financial fraud. Grissom refused to identify the board member’s name but also stated that Ramsey never shared the name of said person either.

In a video taken by WDRB, Grissom was asked why he didn’t report Ramsey’s comments immediately and his response was, “Well, I didn’t. I’m not perfect.”

When pressed on his responsibility to share such information Grissom said he didn’t feel that hearsay would be admissible in court.

NCAA official Stan Wilcox stated that six major programs will be hit with title I violations by the end of the summer. Such an allegation adds to Louisville’s anxiety with a possible sanction looming in the distance.
