TACOMA, Wash. —

Regents at Pacific Lutheran University have chosen a California university administrator as the Tacoma, Wash., school's new president.

Thomas W. Krise was the unanimous recommendation of a presidential search committee.

Krise is also an English professor and a retired Air Force officer.

Since 2008, the 50-year-old Krise has been dean of the College of the Pacific, the arts and sciences college of the University of the Pacific in Stockton, Calif.

Krise says he and his wife Patricia "are delighted and humbled" to be chosen.

PLU said Wednesday that Krise will arrive in June to assume the presidency.

He succeeds Loren Anderson, who will leave PLU in May after 20 years at the university.
