Susan Hockfield announced Thursday that she plans to step down as president of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. "The institute is now moving forward on a new set of ambitious goals, and I have concluded that the powerful momentum we have built makes this an opportune moment for a leadership transition," she wrote in an e-mail sent around the campus. Hockfield has been president since 2004.
