President Transition Announcement

With the blessing of President Bob Kuhn, and with a strong commitment to cultivate a culture with seamless leadership transitions, the Board of Governors of Trinity Western University is pleased to announce the launch of a search for a presidential successor.

In partnership with renowned executive search firm CarterBaldwin—whose legacy of success with evangelical colleges and universities is well-known—the Board of Governors anticipates a wide-ranging and comprehensive search for the man or woman who can build on the trust and vision that marks President Kuhn’s tenure.

The search is being undertaken in anticipation of the completion of the current presidency term set to expire in spring of 2019. However, our current president has provided the Board with the assurance that he remains flexible to ensure that the right candidate for his replacement is found. Further, ongoing discussions are taking place regarding a continuing role for President Kuhn in assisting his successor with effective transition and completion of projects he has begun.

The President Search Committee is comprised of representation from key university constituencies including faculty, staff, students, alumni, and senior leadership. The Search Committee humbly requests your prayers and good faith as they undertake the crucial responsibility of identifying leadership in these very exciting, but challenging, years facing this extraordinary university.
