Hanover College president announces retirement

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The president of southern Indiana's Hanover College is stepping down next year.

The college says President Sue DeWine has informed the school's trustees that she plans to retire in June 2015.

DeWine became the 15th president in school history in 2007.

A fundraising campaign started during her tenure raised more than $26 million to pay for a new outdoor athletic complex, residence hall and student center. The Presbyterian-affiliated liberal arts school says DeWine has overseen a total enrollment increase of 20 percent, to about 1,200 students.

DeWine said the timing is right to retire with the capital campaign ending this fall and to bring in new leadership to implement ideas that are in development.

Hanover was founded in 1827 as the state's first private college. The only college in the state that is older is Indiana University, founded in 1820.
