McClatchie will not seek second term as Huron principal

Huron University College Principal Stephen McClatchie will not seek a second term as principal following the conclusion of his term on June 30, 2016, Huron officials announced Thursday.


After almost 15 years as a senior academic administrator at three different institutions, McClatchie plans to resume teaching and research as a full professor at Huron in 2017, following a year of research leave. In addition, McClatchie will continue working toward ordination as an Anglican priest.

“As I complete my term, I will continue to work closely with the campus community to preserve, strengthen and advance Huron’s core mission, through the objectives outlined in our Strategic Plan,” he said. “The remaining months will be busy, as I hope to bring to fruition many of the initiatives underway as well as to prepare the ground for my successor.”
