GTU Begins Search for New Dean and VP of Academic Affairs

The Dean will work with faculty and administrative colleagues to further develop and implement a newly redesigned PhD program that will create an interactive learning environment among the world’s religious traditions. Applicants should hold the PhD (or equivalent) and be committed to the value of interreligious and interdisciplinary graduate education in theological and religious studies.

Plans for the GTU’s celebration of Dr. Holder as he retires from his current position will be announced next spring.
