Saint Mary's President Sets Retirement Date

The president of Saint Mary's College in Notre Dame has announced plans to retire. Carol Ann Mooney, who has held the position for 12 years, will step down at the end of the 2015-2016 academic year.

Board Chair Mary Burke says "her most lasting legacy will be the Faith Always, Action Now campaign, the most successful capital campaign in our history, raising $105 million which will benefit generations of future Saint Mary's students through scholarships and improved facilities." She continued, "we are profoundly indebted to Carol for all she has accomplished for Saint Mary's during her tenure as our president."

During Mooney's time at the college, she oversaw the construction of Spes Unica Hall and renovation of Madeleva Hall and Science Hall. She is currently working to close out the campaign for the Angela Athletic and Wellness Complex and obtain approval of a new master plan for the northern Indiana campus.

Saint Mary's has hired Washington D.C.-based Academic Search Inc. to assist the search committee in finding the next president. It will include representation from the board of trustees, faculty, staff, alumnae and students.

The school says Mooney has solidified the school's reputation as a "leading" liberal arts college.
