For only the second time in its 165-year history, Washington University in St. Louis will be led by one of its own.
Andrew D. Martin will become the university’s 15th chancellor in June 2019, the board of trustees announced after a special meeting Saturday.
Martin, dean of the University of Michigan’s College of Literature, Science and the Arts since 2014, earned his doctorate in political science from Washington U. in 1998 and spent 14 years there as a professor and administrator.
