AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — The president of the University of Maine at Augusta is leaving to take a job in California.

University of Maine System Chancellor James Page said Monday that Allyson Handley is stepping down to become the executive director of the National University's Sanford Education Center, which will educate nonprofit leaders and teachers.

Handley, who has led the university since 2008, will stay at UMaine Augusta through Sept. 8. Page says he will begin working on choosing an interim president.

The UMaine System has experienced leadership shake-up over the last several months.

Susan Hunter recently became the first female president of UMaine after Paul Ferguson left for Ball State University. Former utility chief David Flanagan was named interim president of the University of Southern Maine last month after Theodora Kalikow stepped down.
