Ross back as Acting President at Algoma U


Earlier today the Board of Governors of Algoma University accepted the resignation of Dr. Craig Chamberlin, President of the University.  Dr. Chamberlin, who was with the university for the last 18 months has decided on returning to Saskatchewan to be with his family.

On behalf of the Board of Governors, we wish Dr. Chamberlin the best in his future endeavors.

“I want to thank everyone at Algoma University and in the Sault Ste. Marie community for welcoming me here. Although my time spent in the community will be short, I truly enjoyed the experience and value the opportunity that I received to engage in this leadership role,” said Dr. Chamberlin.  “Algoma University is a unique and special place, one with great potential to be a remarkable university and I wish everyone well on that journey.”

The Board of Governors welcomes Dr. Celia Ross who will be returning as Acting President and Vice-Chancellor, until a new president is appointed.  Dr. Ross is familiar to the university and Sault Ste. Marie community having served as President and in senior academic leadership roles within the institution.
