More from the Freep:

She has been president since 2008.

Martin will return to the faculty and take a yearlong sabbatical, per the terms of her contract.

Her contract is up in July 2016. She makes $340,000.

Martin and members of Eastern's governing board have feuded, mostly in private, for several years.

We'll have more on this story later.
