The University of Tennessee System Board of Trustees has sent a letter to the U.S. Department of Justice and FBI asking them to investigate whether the school violated federal law by using its personal email accounts for official business.
The letter, dated March 10, asks for documents and information that could lead to the termination of FSU’s chancellor, William McRaven, the university said in a statement.
The university did not say how many employees are still employed by FSU after its president, William E. McMurray, announced his resignation last week.
McMurray, the third-highest-ranking official in the university’s history, has been accused of having a “culture of personal corruption.”
McMurrays resignation came less than two weeks after a federal grand jury indicted former FSU vice chancellor for the handling of student welfare issues, Andrew Haney.
The school said the investigation into the emails and the allegations surrounding the university had been conducted by the U;F;Agency, an independent law firm.
