WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – Former Purdue president France Córdova is taking over leadership of the National Science Foundation.

As a result, she is resigning from the board of the Center for the Advancement of Science in Space, or CASIS. Córdova has chaired CASIS for more than a year.

She steps down from her post to accept the appointment to the National Science Foundation made by President Obama last summer. The U.S. Senate confirms the position, as Córdova is sworn in to the post Monday.
