August 21st, 2014 by Lynn

    PLYMOUTH, N.H. (AP) — Plymouth State University President Sara Jayne Steen says she’s planning to step down as president at the end of June 2015 after nine years at the post.

    Steen said Thursday the timing was appropriate, saying significant milestones have been achieved during her tenure, such as a $32 million facility that will provide space for Health and Human Performance and other programs, as well as a field house and indoor track; and a new strategic plan underway.

    Chair of the University System Board of Trustees Pamela Diamantis praised Steen’s leadership.

    The University System Board will begin a national search for her successor this fall.
