Trinity Western University’s fifth president
Dr. Mark Husbands began his tenure as fifth president of Trinity Western University on July 2.
Husbands was selected by the Board of Governors as their unanimous first choice after an extensive search, in which key stakeholders and internal constituents of the University participated.
“I’m terribly excited about coming here. I’ve learned so much about the kind of impact that Trinity Western has on students” says Husbands, “Helping students to know and to love God with all of their hearts, minds, body, and soul. There is no greater vision. It’s the vision of serving Christ.”
Husbands comes to TWU from Northwestern College in Orange City, Iowa where he served as Vice President for Academic Affairs. Prior to joining Northwestern’s administration, he was the Leonard and Marjorie Maas Chair of Reformed Theology and Director of the Emmaus Scholars Program at Hope College in Holland, Michigan. His experience also includes six years as Assistant Professor of Theology at Wheaton College in Chicago, Illinois, and two years at Tyndale University College and Seminary in Toronto, Ontario, where he taught theology and directed its extension education and summer school.
“Mark has the credentials and experience to provide distinguished leadership, but more importantly, he has the heart and passion to provide servant leadership to our University and to advance the evangelical mission of TWU,” said Lorne Jacobson, Chairman of the Board.
