BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — The University of Louisiana System's president is resigning.
Sandra Woodley gave no reason for stepping down. In a letter released by the system Friday afternoon, Woodley said she's proud of the system's accomplishments since she became president in January of 2013. She said she will remain on the job through Dec. 31 and will serve in a transitional capacity through March 15.

System spokeswoman Cami Geisman said neither Woodley nor board members would have further comment.
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.
