Sylvia Barnard, who has been at the helm of the college for the past 10 years, said she plans to stay in Sudbury after her retirement and hopes to keep giving back to the college community.
"You come to a certain point where you realize that you've been doing something for quite a long time,” she said. “I feel like I'm leaving the college in a really great place.”
Barnard noted her decision was made when “the time was right.”
“I really felt that I needed to get to a place where I was happy with having made the changes and brought the college through tough times and set it up for success."
Cambrian said the process of selecting a new president will begin immediately.
Barnard's last day will be June 30, 2013.
