Marshall president apologizes for revenue move

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) -- Marshall University President Stephen Kopp says he regrets the way revenue in department accounts was moved into a central holding account.

But Kopp says administrators need to get a handle on where resources are being spent.

The Herald-Dispatch reports that Kopp apologized Wednesday for the overnight removal of nearly all funds from department accounts last week. The move has been criticized by faculty who say they weren't notified.

Professor Dallas Brozik says the College of Business took a vote of no confidence against Kopp on Tuesday.

The Faculty Senate has scheduled an emergency meeting Friday to discuss the move, along with an administration proposal to overhaul the school's budget policies.

The Board of Governors will consider the budget overhaul plan on Thursday.
