Welcome to the Van Lunen Center
The Van Lunen Center exists to provide world-class executive management education essential to the future of Christian schools. Each year, up to 24 heads of Christian schools from the U.S., Canada, and throughout the world meet to build their executive skill set.
News: The Van Lunen Center expresses its deep sympathy to the family, friends, students, and colleagues of 2008-2009 Van Lunen Fellow Sharon Hammerschmidt. Sharon will be greatly missed by all who loved her.
We are pleased to announce that Van Lunen Center founding director, Dr. Shirley Roels, will be the new Executive Director of the International Association of Christian Higher Education (IAPCHE). "Dr. Roels comes with four decades of achievement and service in Christian higher education, bringing experience and insight that will surely enhance IAPCHE through her leadership. IAPCHE (f. 1975), is a global network of Christian institutions and individuals committed to fostering the development of integrally Christian higher education worldwide through professional development, institutional capacity building, and scholarly exchange. Joel A. Carpenter, Chair of IAPCHE Board." Congratulations, Dr. Roels!
