BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — The governing board for the University of Louisiana System has named a temporary system president until it finds a permanent successor for Sandra Woodley, who is stepping down from the job.

Dan Reneau was named Thursday as interim system leader during the transition. Reneau was president of Louisiana Tech University for 26 years before retiring in 2013.

In November, Woodley abruptly announced she was resigning as system president at the end of December, giving no reason for her decision to leave the position she'd held for nearly three years. She will remain in an advisory role through March 15.

The UL System serves nearly 90,000 students at nine universities: Southeastern Louisiana University, UL-Lafayette, UL-Monroe, the University of New Orleans, McNeese State, Nicholls State, Louisiana Tech, Grambling State and Northwestern State.
