FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) — Northeastern Indiana's University of Saint Francis is getting a male president for the first time in its nearly 130-year history.
School officials announced Monday that the Rev. Eric Albert Zimmer will become the Fort Wayne school's president on July 1, 2020, after Sister Elise Kriss retires following 27 years at the school.
Zimmer, who's a Jesuit priest, will become the first male president of the school, which was founded in 1890.
