Education Minister Ján Mikolaj appointed Ivan Kneppo as the new rector of the Alexander Dubček University in Trenčín (TnUAD) on February 1 and he will take up his post on March 1, 2010, the TASR newswire wrote.

Former rector Miroslav Mečár announced his resignation in January in response to controversy over diplomas awarded in short time periods and other allegations concerning his administration of the school.

In October 2009, the Education Ministry suspended TnUAD's right to grant bachelor degrees in Human Resources and Personnel Management. According to Mikolaj, TnUAD broke the law by awarding degrees with improper haste. At the same time, the ministry asked Prosecutor-General Dobroslav Trnka to look into the case, as an aspect involving criminal law had emerged in the scandal. SITA
