University of Louisville names interim president after Neeli Bendapudi’s exit


The University of Louisville board of trustees hired provost Lori Stewart Gonzalez as its new interim president at a special meeting Monday morning, just four days after President Neeli Bendapudi’s sudden acceptance of the top position at Penn State University.

News of Bendapudi’s departure from U of L was a shock to many on Thursday, despite the board of trustees holding several emergency meetings in the preceding days discussing personnel matters in closed session — presumably focused entirely on the pending departure of athletic director Vince Tyra.
