ACAD president to step down

January 18, 2010

Alberta College of Art + Design president Lance Carlson announced his resignation last Wednesday after serving as the head of the institution for 6 years. His resignation, which comes into effect June 30, came as a surprise to ACAD's board of governors, whose members are "very sorry he is leaving." While many praise the way Carlson has raised ACAD's profile, discontent has built among faculty, who voted no-confidence in Carlson's leadership last spring. Calgary Herald
