Two Lutheran colleges name new presidents
Within minutes of each other, Luther College in Decorah, Iowa, and Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, Minnesota, announced the selection of new presidents. Both are colleges of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
Carlson succeeds David Tiede, interim president at Luther since the retirement of Richard L. Torgerson. Bergman succeeds Jack R. Ohle, who announced his intention to retire several months ago.
Both Berman and Carlson will begin their terms as president on July 1, 2014.
