Acadia president steps down after "banner" year

January 6, 2008

Dr. Gail Dinter-Gottlieb, president of Acadia University, has announced she will step down at the end of February, more than a year before her term ends, citing personal and family reasons.  (She and her husband have been handling an international relationship for a decade.) In August she advised her board that she would not be seeking a third term. The board "reluctantly" accepted Gottlieb's resignation.  During her time with the school, Gottlieb had many accomplishments, including Acadia's most successful capital campaign ever -- but also the only 2 faculty strikes in the school's history.
