Plymouth State president says university on a good path
PLYMOUTH (AP) - Plymouth State University's president says she'll be leaving campus on a high note.
Sara Jayne Steen is stepping down in June after leading the university since 2006. In her annual "state of the university" address this week, she called the campus vibrant and says it is energetically moving forward.
Steen said the university has received an all-time high number of inquiries and applications for next fall, and she recounted some recent achievements. A $4 million renovation has allowed it to expand its capacity in science, technology, engineering and math programs, and a new academic and athletic complex is opening next fall. The facility will be the largest academic building on campus and will provide new space for classes, research and programs in health, community wellness and athletics.
