DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - An administrator at Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington, will become the next president at Drake University in Des Moines.

Drake announced Monday that Earl F. Martin, Gonzaga’s executive vice president, would become the 13th president at Drake in July.

Martin will succeed David Maxwell, who will retire after 16 years at the university.

At Gonzaga, Martin has provided administrative and operational oversight since 2010. He also served as academic vice president and dean of Gonzaga’s School of Law during his tenure at the university.

Martin joins Drake as the school works to advance STEM initiatives and complete a $200 million fundraising campaign.

Drake University Board of Trustees chairman Larry Zimpleman says Martin is ‘well-equipped’ to lead Drake as the university wraps up past projects and confronts new challenges.
