Clarion University President Leaving After Next Year
Clarion University's president says she's stepping down at the end of the next academic year.
Karen Whitney has been president of the state-owned school for eight years. The school about 70 miles northeast of Pittsburgh has about 5,200 students.
The school is one of several in the 14-school State System of Higher Education that's struggling with declining enrollment. Clarion's enrollment has dropped 29 percent since 2010.
Whitney is the longest-tenured president in the state system.
The resignation announced Monday is effective June 30, 2018.
