From our friends at the Associated Press:

University executive and former Florida lieutenant governor Frank Brogan was named the new chancellor of the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education, which oversees 14 state-owned universities.

The system’s board of governors made the selection of Brogan, who was Florida’s lieutenant governor from 1999-2003 under then-Gov. Jeb Bush, official in a unanimous vote Wednesday.

Brogan has been the chancellor of the State University System of Florida since 2009 and, before that, was president of Florida Atlantic University from 2003-2009. He will be the fourth chancellor to lead the nation’s 13th-largest public university system, enrolling about 115,000 students.
