Updates from the Presidential Search Committee
Search Committee Update #1
June 3, 2021
With the retirement of Dr. Robert Gustafson in a few weeks, Erskine finds itself in a time of transition. While losing a strong leader like Dr. Gustafson may seem like a setback, the Board of Trustees realizes that this can be a time for Erskine to move forward with strength. The challenges facing institutions of Christian higher education are many, but so are the opportunities!
Finding the next president to lead us into the future is crucial and therefore a top priority of the Board. The Presidential Search Committee is committed to looking for a candidate who can bring fresh vision, innovation, and energy to Erskine. To that end, the committee is taking the necessary steps now to make sure we are in a position to attract and recruit the top candidates for this position.
Our committee has created a webpage to advertise and receive applications from candidates, as well as to provide ongoing communication with the Erskine community. We have met with a number of people from the college and seminary to solicit their input and insights into Erskine and its needs. We have committed this search to the Lord in prayer, trusting Him to lead us to the right candidate. We ask you to join us in praying for Erskine and our search for the next president.
