The president of the University of North Alabama is retiring.
The school says William G. Cale Jr. is stepping down after more than nine years in the position.
Trustees will discuss the process for finding a replacement during a meeting set for March 17, and the university says Cale will be available to assist during a period of transition.
Cale came to North Alabama from Penn State University-Altoona, where he was the chief executive and dean. He also worked at Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas.
Cale and his wife plan to remain in the Florence area.
