IAPCHE Executive Director Search
The International Association for the Promotion of Christian Higher Education (IAPCHE) announces a search for an executive director. Dr. Nicholas Lantinga, who has served in this post since 2002, has announced his resignation. Under his creative, energetic leadership, IAPCHE greatly expanded its services, conferences and publications, and built a growing membership and organization worldwide.
Since the new executive director will be forming an administrative office, this search will proceed by way of nominations from IAPCHE member institutions, which will include proposals to host and partially support the administrative work of the IAPCHE secretariat.
Chief academic officers of IAPCHE member institutions are invited to submit nominations. Nomination documents will be received by the search committee chair, Dr. Joel Carpenter, at the Nagel Institute, Calvin College, 3201 Burton, SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546. Please contact Ms. Donna Romanowski at the Nagel Institute for further information about the nomination and selection process: firstname.lastname@example.org; 616-526-7155.
Founded in 1975 at a meeting of Reformed Christian academic leaders and hosted at Dordt College since 1996, IAPCHE aims to serve Jesus as Lord by fostering, worldwide, the development of integral Christian higher education through networking and related academic activity. As an agency with an expansive Christian vision, IAPCHE seeks to assist a broad spectrum of churches in their commitment to advance learning, discovery and cultural creativity for the sake of the Gospel.
