Paul Jewer, chair of the Board of Governors of Acadia University, announced May 9 that the board has re-appointed University President and Vice-Chancellor Ray Ivany to a five-year term beginning July 1, 2014.

This re-appointment is an early renewal of Ivany’s initial six-year term that began on April 1, 2009.

“It is my sincere pleasure to announce on behalf of Acadia’s Board of Governors that Ray has been re-appointed to a second term,” said Jewer.

“In our campus-wide consultations, we heard from staff, faculty and students who were overwhelmingly supportive of Ray’s leadership. The board made renewing Ray’s appointment a strategic priority as Acadia builds growing momentum both inside and outside the institution at a time when post-secondary education in Canada is facing unprecedented challenges.”
