Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus announced the new President of the Naval Postgraduate School July 16.
 


Vice Adm. (retired) Ronald A. Route will replace NPS Interim President Rear Adm. Jan E. Tighe on a date to be determined later this year.
 


Tighe will return to the Office of the Chief of Naval Operations in Washington D.C. Mabus said that Tighe's performance as NPS head was "nothing short of remarkable."
 


"Admiral Route is the right leader for the job. His exemplary naval service of 36 years is invaluable to the position and I trust him to expertly guide this institution as they continue to provide the high-quality, relevant and unique advanced education and research opportunities that make our Naval forces the best in the world," said Mabus.
 


Route goes to NPS with more than 20 years of leadership at the executive and operational levels. His numerous past leadership positions include tours as Naval Inspector General and commander of the U.S. Navy's Warfare Development Command.
 


Route also brings academic experience to lead NPS. He is the former president of the U.S. Naval War College (NWC), one of the nation's premier senior academic institutions. At the NWC, Route led a team of some 300 military and civilian faculty members and oversaw the education of more than 600 resident and 3,000 non-resident graduate students.
