Marquette names UWM chancellor as president

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Marquette University has named University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Chancellor Michael Lovell as its new president.

Lovell will be the first layman to lead the 133-year-old Jesuit university. His selection comes after the university's trustees changed its bylaws in 2011 to allow a non-Jesuit to serve as president.

Marquette announced Lovell's hiring Wednesday following a meeting of its board of trustees.

Lovell earned $343,500 as chancellor at UW-Milwaukee.
