ST. PAUL, Minn. - The University of St. Thomas made an unprecedented move Thursday -- appointing a woman and non-cleric as the Catholic school's new president.

The Board of Trustees named Dr. Julie Sullivan to replace outgoing college president Father Dennis Dease.

Sullivan is the first woman and the first non-clergy president in the university's 128 year history.
