Tabor College President Jules Glanzer recently announced sweeping changes in management, staffing, and structure of the college.
Changes include the creation of a new executive team comprised of the president, four vice presidents, and the new position of provost, and the formation of a five-member faculty council that will meet directly with the president.
In announcing the changes, Glanzer said, “It is my desire that this new management structure and governance will increase the collaborative effort of leading Tabor College. It is my intent that there will be increased communication, meaningful participation, and greater trust as a result of these changes.”
Glanzer presented the new organizational structure to the Tabor College Board of Directors last month. The reorganization will be tested through the 2008-09 academic year and then be reviewed.
Dr. Lawrence Ressler, former vice president of academics and student development, has been appointed as provost. He will serve as the point person on campus in the absence of the president, and lead faculty in a conversation regarding academic excellence.
Kirby Fadenrecht who has been with the college for 27 years and former vice president of business and finance, has been named senior vice president of business and finance.
Eric Codding, former dean of student of development, has been named vice president of student life, learning, and formation.
Assuming the position of vice president of athletics is Rusty Allen, former vice president of enrollment management. Replacing Allen as vice president of enrollment management and marketing is Dr. Linda Cantwell, a former associate professor of communication. Allen and Cantwell began serving in their new roles Sept. 1.
Jim Elliot retains his position as vice president of advancement, in charge of fund-raising for the college.
