COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) -- The University of Maryland has picked a new president.

Officials announced that Wallace D. Loh, provost at the University of Iowa, has been appointed president in an e-mail sent Monday to the university community.

Loh will take over from C.D. Mote, who is retiring after 12 years at the state's public university system's flagship campus in College Park on Aug. 31. Loh is expected to start Nov. 1.

Sixty-five-year-old Loh has been second in command at the University of Iowa since 2008, overseeing personnel and budgets for the state university. He was born in Shanghai and moved to Peru, then after high school headed to the United States, where he earned degrees from Grinnell College in Iowa, Cornell, the University of Michigan and Yale.
