ESR Announces Acting Dean

Earlham College President Alan Price has announced that Matt Hisrich, currently Director of Recruitment and Admissions at ESR, has agreed to serve as Acting Dean during the 2018-19 academic year.

"Matt has been an integral and respected part of ESR's team for several years now," shared outgoing dean Jay Marshall. "I believe his energy and gifts will serve the seminary well as it enters this transitional phase."

Matt began his current position at ESR in 2012, and previously worked as a Ministerial Advocate for Indiana Yearly Meeting, building strong connections in the Quaker World. He earned a B.A. at Hillsdale College, an M.Div. at ESR and he expects to complete a Doctorate in Management from the University of Maryland University College in December 2018.

Matt has broad knowledge of the issues currently facing ESR and theological education in general and will bring energy, passion, and strong administrative skills to the position.

He will step into the role of Acting Dean on July 1st. We are thankful for his willingness to serve and look forward to the year ahead!
