Ann Roberts Divine Retires from STLCC After 33 Years of Service

May 15, 2008

Dr. Ann Divine  
Ann Roberts Divine, Ph.D.

Ann Roberts Divine, Ph.D., will retire on June 30, after serving St. Louis Community College for the past 33 years. In 1975, Dr. Divine was hired as the assistant dean of instruction for the Meramec campus from an administrative internship through a program funded by the Carnegie Corporation created to bring women into academic administration.

Several years later, Dr. Divine became responsible for what was then called the arts division, which included English/reading, communications, art, and humanities. After the college reorganization of 1993, she became the executive dean. As executive dean, she supervised counseling and advising; until those areas were switched with access and assessment. She also established the occupational therapy assistant, physical therapist assistant, and voice/data communications programs.

In 1998, the college centralized technical computer support, and Dr. Divine took on the responsibility for that until it was moved to the vice-chancellor for technology in 2003; she has continued to serve as the liaison with that department.

During the most recent reorganization, Dr. Divine was appointed vice-president for academic affairs, following seven and a half months as acting president for the Meramec campus.

In honor of her achievements and long-time commitment to higher education, the college has established the Ann Roberts Divine Scholarship. At this time, donations total slightly over $5,000.
