W.Va. group wants changes to university board

September 15, 2008

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- A faculty-led group at West Virginia University wants to see significant changes to the school's governing body following a year of scandal at the institution.

Mountaineers for Integrity and Responsibility plan to announce Tuesday a proposal to expand faculty membership on the 16-member Board of Governors and open the body to more members from other states.

Mark Brazaitis (bruh-ZY'-tus), an English professor at WVU and the group's spokesman, says the changes will make a stronger board that avoids narrow political calculations in its decisions.

The group formed after a scandal erupted over a master's degree that an investigative panel found was improperly granted by WVU to Gov. Joe Manchin's daughter.

Brazaitis said lawmakers will also be present Tuesday to discuss the proposal.
