Sister Andrea, of the Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, will take office at the start of the 2016-2017 academic year for the Catholic women’s college.

In a Feb. 23 letter to colleagues, Sister Andrea said “leaving St. Kate’s will be among the hardest things I have ever done,” citing the university’s accomplishments and community she’s experienced since she began in 1998.

St. Kate’s board of trustees expects to name a president in March.
