FRANKLIN, Ind. (AP) — Franklin College says its President Thomas J. Minar plans to step down following the 2019-2020 academic year.

Minar says in a statement this week that the suburban Indianapolis school has much to celebrate, including fundraising efforts, a new strategic plan and an inclusive student experience. He says the "dedicated stewardship" of the school's faculty and administrative teams is key in the school's success.

Franklin College last month announced it had exceeded its $10 million fundraising goal to support construction and renovation of a new $17 million science facility. The goal was topped for the Campaign for the Sciences, which is helping to pay for the Franklin College Science Center that fully opened in January.

Minar became Franklin College's 16th president on July 1, 2015.
