The University of Louisville Board of Trustees meets over the next two days for their annual retreat. It’s being held this year at Fort Knox.

University spokesperson Mark Hebert says the trustees wants to visit the expanding base.

“To give our Board of Trustees a look at the vast array of housing and buildings and the number of folks that will be coming to Fort Knox very shortly,” says Hebert. “And all those folks, those thousands of people, will be looking for educational opportunities, and we want the University of Louisville to be right at the top of their head as they go looking for higher education.”

Hebert says while in meetings, the board will complete the annual evaluation of University President James Ramsey as well. Ramsey has turned down performance bonuses the last two years because of the school’s tight budget.
