Ladner update:

This just came into my e-mail box:

American University’s Executive Committee of the Board Places President
Ladner on Administrative Leave. Statement by Leslie Bains, chair of the
American University Board of Trustees.

The Executive Committee of the American University Board of Trustees
today placed President Benjamin Ladner on administrative leave pending
the outcome of an investigation into personal and travel expenses.
Provost Neil Kerwin will serve as acting president during this period.

We have full confidence that Dr. Kerwin and the experienced and talented
cabinet and senior management in place at American University will carry
out their duties in as excellent a manner as they always have.

Dr. Kerwin, an AU alumnus, has served as provost since 1998 and
previously was the dean of AU’s School of Public Affairs. He has been
associated with the university for 30 years.

Earlier this month it was announced that the Board of Trustees
authorized a review of the personal and travel expenses in one
department. That review continues using outside counsel and outside
auditors who are working closely with the trustees’ Audit Committee.

Acting President Kerwin said, “For more than 30 years, I have been a
member of the AU community, and I can assure you that the institution
has never been stronger in terms of student quality, financial strength,
and academic position.”

This is going to get very interesting.
