RALEIGH — The president of St. Augustine’s University says she will step down from her post at the end of May amidst a number of problems at the historically black school.

The News and Observer of Raleigh reports () Dianne Boardley Suber announced her decision on Friday, the latest development in a week of revelations. The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools was reviewing the school because of its financial condition.

Full-time equivalent enrollment fell from 1,387 in fall 2012 to 1,267 last fall, when an audit showed a $3 million drop in tuition revenue.

On Thursday, Suber fired the school’s vice president of business and finance. Last month, she placed the provost on leave. Two other vice presidents left last year.

Suber had been president for 14 years.
