U of L’s acting president rumored to leave for Cincinnati

Acting / Interim President Neville Pinto

By Kyeland Jackson —

Acting President Neville Pinto may bid adieu to U of L, opting to be president at the University of Cincinnati.

A WCPO report projected Pinto’s nomination, stating the school board will vote Pinto in Saturday. University of Louisville spokesperson John Karman could not confirm or deny the reports.

Pinto’s departure would widen the void in leadership, with multiple trustee vacancies and a soon-to-be empty Chief Financial Officer position. Pinto took over as acting president for U of L after former president James Ramsey resigned over the summer.

Pinto previously said he would not remain as U of L’s president, instead opting for his previous position as professor and dean for the Speed School of Engineering once a permanent replacement was found.
