|Description||Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano will announce her resignation on Friday, according to Reuters and the Los Angeles Times. |
The LA Times reports Napolitano will head to the University of California system to serve as its president:
Napolitano’s nomination by a committee of UC regents came after a secretive process that insiders said focused on her early as a high-profile, although untraditional, candidate who has led large public agencies and shown a strong interest in improving education.
UC officials believe that her Cabinet experiences –- which include helping to lead responses to hurricanes and tornadoes and overseeing some anti-terrorism measures -- will help UC administer its federal energy and nuclear weapons labs and aid its federally funded research in medicine and other areas.
Napolitano has been secretary of Homeland Security since 2009 and is the first the first woman to fill that role. She previously served as Democratic governor of Arizona.
