Columbia College President Elizabeth Dinndorf announced her retirement in a statement on December 23.

Dinndorf, who has served as president of the college since 2012, will step down in June.

“It has been my privilege to serve as your president over the last five years,” Dinndorf said in a statement to the campus. “As a graduate of a women’s college, I know what an empowering learning experience it is, and that experience is at Columbia College.”

Under Dinndorf’s presidency, Columbia College’s presence in the region has grown and new programs were introduced. Her leadership led to the development of the Institute for Leadership and Professional Excellence and partnerships with area technical colleges for the completion of baccalaureate degrees at their sites. Another accomplishment developed during her tenure was the Mellon Grant, funding for the establishment of the McNair Center for Entrepreneurism.

C.B. Smith, chair of the college’s board, announced that Carol Moore, who has served as interim provost since September, would become provost and executive vice president during the transition.
