Agnes Scott College President Elizabeth Kiss announced today her plans to step down next June after 12 years as president.
Kiss began her tenure of the private women’s college in Decatur in August 2006.
“Agnes Scott College is a better place today because of Elizabeth Kiss’ extraordinary leadership and unwavering commitment to our mission of educating women to be strong leaders in a global society,” said Agnes Scott Board Chair Elizabeth Holder said in a written statement. “Elizabeth’s transformative leadership will be felt on this campus for years to come. She will truly be missed.”
Under Kiss’s leadership, Agnes Scott created a new core curriculum focused on “global learning” and leadership; established new majors and new partnerships with Emory University and Georgia Tech; and launched and exceeded a $100 million fundraising campaign.
