Miller will continue to lead the university until September, when her contract expires on Sept. 1. She has been the college’s president for the past four years.

An interim president will be named by the board, but officials did not specify when that decision could come.

In a brief statement, the school’s Board of Trustees thanked her for her service:

"The Board of Trustees is grateful for Dr. Miller's service and commitment to LeMoyne-Owen for the past four years," said Dr. Christopher Davis, chairman of the Board of Trustees. "We look forward to what the future holds for our institution as we embark upon this new chapter."
