LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — The University of Louisville has hired the University of Kansas’ provost as its new president.

U of L trustees voted during a special meeting Tuesday to hire Neeli Bendapudi, completing a nationwide search for the next leader of the scandal-plagued university. The university has been searching for a full-time president since James Ramsey was forced out as campus president in 2016.

Ramsey was forced to resign after coming under attack for his lucrative compensation and a series of other scandals.

Greg Postel has been serving as U of L’s interim president since early 2017.
