Dear Hope College Community,
Welcome to our search journey. As Chair of the Presidential Search Committee, it is my privilege to partner with the Hope College Community as we seek the next President of the College – the President who will lead the College to its future.
The mission of the College is to educate students to lives of leadership and service in our world. To do this in the context of the historic Christian faith. To do it through excellent academic programs and co-curricular activities. The mission of the College is the cornerstone of our search. We seek the person who is called to live this mission with us in the years to come.
The Search Committee represents the perspectives of our community – students, staff, faculty, the administration and the board. With the College’s Virtues of Public Discourse as our guide, as a Committee and as a community, we seek to listen, welcome, understand, challenge and speak truth in love.
The College’s mission is our cornerstone, the Virtues are our guide, the prayers of the people of Hope are our inspiration, and the Lord’s wisdom is the light (Proverbs 3:5-6) for our search. This website is a resource for all of us to be engaged and stay informed as the search progresses.
Thank you for your prayers. It is with a deep sense of excitement that we anticipate bringing the next President of Hope to the College.
Chair, Presidential Search Committee
Trustee, Hope College Board of Trustees
