The appointment was approved by the university’s senate on Saturday and will begin on Nov. 1.
Romanow served as Saskatchewan’s premier from 1991 to 2001 and has a long history with the university.
He earned a bachelor of arts and a law degree from the University of Saskatchewan, and served as student union president from 1960 to 1961.
Romanow is currently a senior policy fellow in the university’s College of Arts and Science.
He will replace Blaine Favel, who completes his term at the end of the month.
