The University of Louisville has elected a new president.
At a press conference today, the university's board of trustees announced Dr. Neeli Benda-Pudi as its next leading official. She will not only serve as the 18th president in the school's history, but also as the university's first female president. Benda-pudi was the provost, executive vice chancellor, and professor at the University of Kansas.
She replaces Dr. Greg Postel, who was elected interim president in January 2017.
