"Over the last 24 hours our community has been fractured by the comments made by former UofL trustee John Schnatter," Bendapudi said in a news conference Friday afternoon.
Schnatter admitted to using a racial slur during a May conference call following a Forbes report.
The university has also decided to remove Schnatter's name from the Center for Free Enterprise.
