Personal & Confidential

The Honorable Matt Bevin
700 Captial Ave, Suite 100
Frankfort, KY 40601

Dear Governor Bevin:

I appreciated our recent conversation. As a result, I am writing to reaffirm what we discussed:

1. The University of Louisville is absolutely critical to the health & economic & social well-being of our community & state;

2. For Kentucky to grow & prosper as a state, it is important for Louisville to be successful as a community; for Louisville to prospect it needs a great research university.

3. As I said to you, the members of a restructured Board compliant with state law should have the opportunity for a ‘fresh start.’

As a result, upon a legal restructure of the Board of Trustees at the University of Louisville, I will immediately offer, to the newly appointed board, my resignation/retirement as President of the University of Louisville.

Again, I thank you for your support & commitment to addressing difficult issues that are important to moving our state forward.
