NASHVILLE (AP) -- Longtime Vanderbilt University academic Nicholas S. Zeppos will take over as the university's eighth chancellor.

Zeppos has served as the Nashville university's chief academic officer since 2002 and its interim chancellor since last summer when Gordon Gee resigned.

The legal scholar from Milwaukee, Wis., has spent the last two decades at Vanderbilt as a professor and administrator.

The school announced his position Saturday, effective immediately. Vanderbilt University, founded in 1873, is a private research university with more than 11,000 students.
