Meredith College President Maureen Hartford said Monday she plans to retire in June 2011.

She's held the top spot at the women's college since 1999.

"It has been a joy to serve Meredith - especially Meredith students and alumnae. I have no doubt that Meredith will continue to be a wonderful place for women to learn, work and grow into strong, confident, liberally-educated individuals," said Hartford in a media statement.

Hartford said announcing her departure 18 months in advance would give the school plenty of time to find a replacement, and will allow her to finish up short term goals like improving the school's financial situation.
