Of the many decisions that emerged from the Board Meeting, I am excited to share with you the important news that Dr. Amy Dyer was elected Faculty emerita. This is an honor that needs to be voted by both Faculty and the Board. Both did so with acclaim.
There is something remarkable about sustained service to the institution. Dr. Dyer has been a shining example. She was not only a dedicated teacher and scholar (she was the pioneering hand behind the influential Episcopal Church Curriculum); but she was also willing to serve the institution where needed. In her time, she was the Associate Dean of Students, the Director of the Butterfly House, and the Director of the Center for the Ministry of Teaching - to just take a sample. She always participated in the life of the Faculty: she loved connecting with students.
Dr. Dyer is currently on sabbatical; she formally finishes at the end of December. Right now, she is at Gladstone's Library in North Wales. But from afar, we reach out to Amy. Congratulations and thank you. You are a gracious presence; we appreciate everything you have done.
The Very Rev. Ian S. Markham, Ph.D. Dean and President
