A press release says the University System Board will begin a national search for her successor this fall. Steen said she is leaving because the "timing is appropriate."
“It has been my honor to serve as president of Plymouth State University,” Steen said. “I am proud of this vibrant University that is transforming students’ lives and making a difference.”
Steen, also an English professor at the university, will step down after nine years as president on June 30, 2015.
