OGDEN, Utah (AP) — Weber State University President F. Ann Millner has announced she will step down, saying she'd planned to do so when she'd spent about a decade in the post.

Millner said at a Friday staff meeting that she'd asked the Board of Regents to start looking for her replacement, and said she'll leave the job when that person takes the helm.

Before Millner became president in October 2002, she worked for two decades in other areas of the university including fundraising and continuing education.

She was the first woman to lead a Utah public university at the time.

School officials say Weber State's enrollment has grown under her leadership. She's also led the university through several construction and renovation projects on Ogden and Layton campuses.
