HANOVER, Ind. (AP) — The president of southern Indiana’s Hanover College is stepping down next year.

The college says President Sue DeWine has informed the schools trustees that she would retire in June 2015.

She’s served as the 15th president of Indiana’s oldest four-year college for seven years.

A fundraising campaign started during her tenure raised more than $26 million to pay for a new outdoor athletic complex, residence hall and student center. The Presbyterian-affiliated liberal arts school says DeWine has overseen total enrollment increasing 20 percent to about 1,200 students.

DeWine says the timing is right to retire with the capital campaign ending this fall and to bring in new leadership to implement ideas that are in development.
