FORT WAYNE, Ind. —

A Purdue trustee says the newly named chancellor at Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne will not be subject to mandatory retirement at 65 like the man she is replacing.

Trustees Vice Chairman Thomas Spurgeon says university policy states that newly hired people can stay in place until they can build a $44,000 annuity. He says that typically takes seven to eight years.

The university announced Tuesday it had hired 64-year-old Vicky Carwein (car-wine), chancellor at Washington State University's Tri-Cities campus, to replace Michael Wartell. Wartell turned 65 in November.

Carwein grew up in the central Indiana town of Gwynnville. She previously was president at Westfield State College in Massachusetts and chancellor at the University of Washington-Tacoma.
