MaryAnn Baenninger will become president of Drew University after she steps down as head of the College of St. Benedict in St. Joseph, Minn.

Baenninger, who announced last fall that she was leaving St. Benedict, was named Monday as the new president of Drew, a private liberal arts college in Madison, N.J. She beat out a pool of more than 100 applicants and will take over in July, according to a university news release.

Baenninger has been president of St. Benedict since 2004. She said in October, at age 57, that she was giving up her post for personal reasons but was not ready to retire. She will remain at St. Benedict until June.
