Almost two years after a divorce filing and reconciliation in early 2015, Dr. Phil Schubert has told faculty and staff he and wife Jamie are finalizing plans for divorce.
After Schubert addressed a faculty and staff meeting on Tuesday, Dr. Barry Packer, chair of the Board of Trustees, sent an email to members of the ACU community saying the board would continue to stand by Schubert and his leadership of the university.
Several weeks after the original divorce filling in July 2014, the board released a statement supporting Schubert.
Packer expressed the board’s continued position in support of Schubert in his current role.
“The Board of Trustees has invested substantial time in prayer and discussion and we continue to stand by our earlier decision to support Dr. Schubert in his role as president,” Packer wrote in his email. “We are confident in his ability to help us fulfill our mission in the years ahead.”
