The board of governors of the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education next week will begin a search for a chancellor to lead its 14 universities.

System spokesman Kenn Marshall said the board on Friday named executive vice chancellor Peter H. Garland as acting chancellor, effective March 1.

Garland replaces Chancellor John C. Cavanaugh, who leaves Feb. 28 to head the Consortium of Universities of the Washington Metropolitan Area in Washington.

Cavanaugh has led the state system since 2008. Its enrollment of about 115,000 students includes those at Indiana, California and Slippery Rock universities in Western Pennsylvania.

Marshall said Garland has held leadership posts in the state system since 2002.
