Gov. Doug Ducey has appointed former political rival Fred DuVal to the Arizona Board of Regents.

Ducey announced Monday that DuVal, the 2014 Democratic nominee for governor, would fill a vacancy on the board.

DuVal was the board chairman in 2011.

Ducey calls his former opponent a remarkable leader with "immeasurable higher education experience."

DuVal says he wants to make college more affordable for students and impact the workforce in Arizona.

A graduate of the University of Arizona, DuVal has worked closely with the school serving on various boards.

He will fill a seat previously held by Rick Myers.
