WACO, Texas — Kenneth Starr, the former independent prosecutor whose work led to President Bill Clinton's impeachment, has been named president of Baylor University.

The world's largest Baptist university announced Monday that Starr would be the Waco school's 14th president. The 63-year-old Starr has been the dean of Pepperdine University's School of Law in Malibu, Calif., since 2004.

Starr was appointed to investigate the Whitewater land deal involving Clinton and his affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky. Many Democrats feel Starr's investigation was politically motivated. Clinton was impeached but not convicted.

Starr replaces John M. Lilley, who was fired as Baylor's president in 2008.

The announcement on Baylor's Web site says Starr will be introduced Tuesday.
