The president of Plymouth State University is stepping down.

Sara Jayne Steen has been president of the university for nine years, and says she will step down from the post in June of next year.

In a message to staff, Steen says this will allow her time for other academic pursuits and to travel with her husband.

Steen is also vice chair of the New Hampshire Higher Education Commission and on the executive committee of the New Hampshire College and University Council.

The University System Board will begin a national search for a new president this fall.
