News From Erskine College
Dear Erskine Community:
Earlier this week, the Presidential Search Committee was informed that the candidate it had planned to present to the Board of Trustees at the May meeting had withdrawn from the search process. This is disappointing news to share with you; however, I am extremely grateful to the committee for their tremendous and admirable work over the past year. The Presidential Search Committee has been disbanded and a new committee will be appointed to begin a new search for Erskine’s sixteenth president.
I now reach out to the entire Erskine community for a season of prayer: (1) for the Board of Trustees, that its membership would be granted wisdom to assess and respond to financial and relationship issues and to achieve consensus on how best to achieve Erskine’s mission; (2) for the administration, faculty, staff, and students, that they would, in all things, delight in their unique opportunity to serve and further God’s kingdom at Erskine; (3) for the alumni, that they would engage with and support Erskine and her mission in ways that will transform the life and effectiveness of the institution; and (4) for all of us, that we would receive a complete transformation of the very motives of our hearts and become more aware of and grateful for God’s grace, sovereignty, and providence.
