Dr. Carol Taylor, president-elect and CEO of the consolidated Evangel University, has made recommendations to the Board of Trustees for her leadership team. The Executive Committee of the board, empowered to act for the full board, ratified the following appointments.
Once Dr. Taylor takes office in July, she will conduct a functional review of each executive area and set strategic priorities for the first 18 months. There will likely be other adjustments and appointments to develop the strategic leadership of the Office of the President to fully implement the consolidation.
“I look forward to joining the consolidated Evangel University community this summer and am eager to begin working with the leadership team and consolidated communities,” said Dr. Taylor.
“In this transitional year we will celebrate President Spence achieving 40 years of service; celebrate the three great legacies of Evangel University, Central Bible College, and the Assemblies of God Theological Seminary; and begin to discover the vision for the future as a consolidated, comprehensive university where we will continue to equip men and women to serve the church and the world,” she said.
In mid-April, The Higher Learning Commission (HLC) of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools notified the presidents of the Assemblies of God Theological Seminary (AGTS), Central Bible College (CBC), and Evangel University (EU) that their application to consolidate the three institutions had been approved.
The consolidated university is retaining the name Evangel University.
Evangel President Robert H. Spence will be on sabbatical for the fall 2013 semester, in honor of the start of his 40th year as president.
