Feds investigate Wheeling Jesuit research programs, seize records


By The Associated Press


Wheeling Jesuit University officials said they’re cooperating with federal investigators who seized records from the offices of the vice president for federally sponsored programs.

Spokeswoman Michele Rejonis said files were seized on Feb. 15 from J. Davitt McAteer’s offices, and she’s not sure which federal agency was involved.

Wheeling Jesuit has many federally sponsored programs, including collaborations with NASA and a center that helps commercialize new technologies.

McAteer is also director of its National Technology Transfer Center and the Erma Ora Byrd Center for Education Technologies.
