Tensions High as Bentley and ASU Trustees Discuss Audit & Pres. Search
The meeting lasted nearly 3 hours -- full of heated conversation between Governor Bentley and trustee members discussing the preliminary audit report's findings, the search for ASU new president... and what's next.
This all comes after an audit by Forsensic Strategic Solutions on the university's finances, which the Governor's Office had ordered.The Governor and Board went back and forth on whether to even discuss the audit.
The Governor says he will add another person to the presidential search committee -- while he never said who it would be, he said it would be a student. Board member, Marvin Wiggins, says he's still upset that the audit was released to the public before the trustees got to see it.
As far as the presidential search, names of applicants have not been released, but there are 11 finalists who will be narrowed down at the search committee's next meeting on November sixth.
