Everywhere you turn these days there’s a story about Robert Felner, the now-infamous former Dean of the College of Education and Human Development at the University of Louisville. The federal investigation surrounding Felner’s shady dealings and decades-long tenure of questionable behavior at various institutions has rocked the world of higher education.
Throughout the past three months we have written nearly 80 stories about the ordeal and many thousands of comments have been left on this website from those who are in-the-know. We have learned all kinds of interesting information about Felner and his past. And we have uncovered potential scandal at the highest levels of the University’s administration.
But the question lingering in the minds of many we speak with on a regular basis at UofL is, “What’s the deal with Felner’s girlfriends and how do they play into all of this?” A good question, indeed.
Many current and former faculty members within the College of Education and Human Development have reported that Felner had several girlfriends and younger women he was close with– people he’d brought into the CEHD. One of those individuals is Natalie Siglitz, director of the Office of Civic Education and Engagement at CEHD.
