(Harrisburg) -- John M. Anderson, a college president in New York state, has been tapped to become the next president of Pennsylvania's Millersville University.

The appointment has been announced by the State System of Higher Education.

Anderson, who was picked following a national search, will assume his new duties on April 1. He will succeed Francine McNairy, who plans to retire next month after nearly a decade at the helm of Millersville.

Anderson, who has been president of Alfred State College in New York since 2008, has more than 20 years' administrative experience and spent 15 years as an instructor and professor of chemistry and physics.

Millersville is one of Pennsylvania's 14 state-owned universities.
