PLAINFIELD, Vt. (AP) - The president of Vermont's Goddard College is stepping down at the end of the year.

Barbara Vacarr says she's leaving her post at the Plainfield college so she can focus her time on family issues.

Vacarr joined Goddard in 2010 after a career developing programs for adult learners.

During Vacarr's time at Goddard, the school has adopted a revised mission statement and implemented a 5-year strategic plan focusing upon key infrastructure concerns, such as increased outside fundraising and alumni outreach.

She also helped launch the school's undergraduate program on the West Coast.

Goddard College was chartered in 1938. In 1963, Goddard became the first American college to offer adult-degree programs, and it now specializes in low-residency education.
