(York) -- Penn State York is getting a new leader.

David W. Chown will take on the role of chancellor at the Spring Garden Township campus, which has an enrollment of about 1,500 students.

He is currently the chief academic officer and a senior vice president at Upper Iowa University in northeast Iowa.

Chown replaces John J. Romano, Penn State's former vice president for commonwealth campuses and former CEO of Penn State York.

Romano came out of retirement to lead the campus until a new chancellor was found.

Chown will take office on February 15.
