Auditors are looking at allegations of federal grant mismanagement at North Carolina A-and-T University in Greensboro.
Interim Chancellor Lloyd Hackley says auditors are focusing on the university's College of Agriculture and College of Engineering as a part of the investigation.
Other aspects of university bookkeeping are also under a microscope, including possible improper payments in the housing and residential life office and concerns about improperly classified employees from the human resources department.
There's also a review of the entire athletics department, along with grants, contracts and scholarships.
Hackley says about eight investigators are on campus to conduct the audit. He hopes to receive a preliminary report soon.
University officials called for the audit after a vice chancellor at the school was charged with embezzlement of state property and obtaining property by false pretense.
