TWU forms Leadership Advisory Council for School of Business

Langley, British Columbia—Trinity Western University has formed a Leadership Advisory Council for the University’s new School of Business. The business leaders on the Council, from B.C., Ontario and Taiwan, will lend their expertise and vision to the School of Business and serve as industry resources for students.

“It’s essential for our students, as business graduates, to have practical business savvy in addition to theoretical business knowledge,” says Kevin Sawatsky, dean of TWU’s School of Business. “This is one way we are networking students directly with the corporate world.”

Those on the Council include: Robert G. Kuhn (chair), senior partner in the law firm Kuhn & Company; Henry Braun, president of Pacific Northern Rail Contractors Corp.; Garry Corbett, manager of labour relations for B.C. Hydro; Fred Fleming, co-owner and director of Ritchie-Smith Feeds Inc.; Ted Hilton, owner and founder of the Accurpress Company; Larry Nelson, executive director of Baptist Housing Ministries and director of the Canadian Council of Christian Charities; Joseph Pai, chairman of Ogilvy Public Relations Worldwide/Taiwan; and Doug Snetsinger, president of the Insight Group.

“These expert business leaders will play an important role in enhancing opportunities for students,” explains Sawatsky. “And they will help prepare our graduates to make a significant impact in the marketplace.”

Trinity Western University, located in Langley, B.C., is a privately funded Christian liberal arts university enrolling over 3,000 students this year. With a broad-based, liberal arts and sciences curriculum, the University offers undergraduate degrees in 34 major areas ranging from business, education and computer science to biology and nursing, and 12 graduate degrees including counselling psychology, theology and administrative leadership.
