Brown University’s president, Ruth Simmons, today announced that this year would be her final one as president of Brown University.

Prior to her tenure at the helm of Brown, Simmons was the president of Smith College. She was the first female black president of a prominent college or university. A 2009 Brown University poll also suggested she had an unprecedented 80% approval rating. According to the “Brown Daily Herald,” “Simmons wrote that she ‘recently’ decided to step down, adding that this is ‘the ideal time’ for the University and for herself to move to new leadership.”
