STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - The University of Louisville's President is leaving for Pennsylvania.

The Penn State board of trustees voted unanimously to appoint Neeli Bendapudi as President.

Bendapudi became the president at the University of Louisville in 2018, replacing former President James Ramsey.

In a statement, Bendapudi called the decision to leave "not an easy one," adding she will "always carry Louisville, and the Cardinals in my heart."

She stands to make $950,000 per year at her new job, plus $1.25m in deferred compensation and two transition payments of $100,000 each.
