A fond farewell to Lise Goddard

It is with great appreciation and fondness that we share that Head of School Lise Goddard has announced her intent to depart Maine Coast Semester at the conclusion of the spring term. 

Lise arrived at Chewonki in 2021 in the thick of the pandemic, and we deeply appreciate her leadership and guidance in moving the program through that difficult time.

Our two deans, Sarah Rebick and Julie Barnes will be co-directing Maine Coast Semester through next year as we conduct a search for the next leader of the program. We hope to share more details on that search soon as we assemble our search committee. 

Lise has a full plate of adventure ahead, as she plans to undertake a long-awaited 500-mile backpacking trip across Spain later in the year.  

Please join us in thanking Lise for all her good work!
