Deans’ Profiles

Under the energetic leadership of President Robert G. Duffett and with the broad input of the Eastern community, the University selected R. Keith Iddings as their new Provost in 2014 to guide visionary expansion of the Eastern academic enterprise.  The realignment of departments and programs into six colleges – College of Arts & Sciences, College of Business and Leadership, College of Education, College of Health & Social Sciences, the Templeton Honors College, and the Palmer Theological Seminary is one of the bold new moves taken in this past two years to strengthen and advance Eastern University’s vision of expanding its world class education in a Christian environment. 

New deans are being recruited for:
a)    The College of Education
b)    The College of Health & Social Sciences and
c)    The Palmer Theological Seminary 

The successful candidates will espouse and demonstrate strong Christian commitments, be strategic thinkers who are entrepreneurial and innovative, and be collaborative leaders who value shared governance between the university’s faculty and administration. Each of the new deans will have the exceptional opportunity to work cross functionally with a community of internal and external stakeholders to build a strong cohesive team. The dean of each college/theological seminary will also collaborate with stakeholders to shape vision, develop strategy, enhance the culture, and create high quality, relevant program offerings to serve a diverse student body which includes traditional and adult, undergraduate and graduate, campus-based and online.
