Goshen College will inaugurate it's 18th president, Dr. Rebecca Stoltzfus, during a public ceremony Saturday. Stoltzfus' ceremony will be held in the Music Center's Sauder Concert Hall. 

Stoltzfus graduated from Goshen College in 1983 as a chemistry student before earning a master's and doctoral degree in human nutrition at Cornell University. She taught human nutrition at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health before joining the Cornell faculty in 2002. Stoltzfus most recently served as vice provost for undergraduate education at Cornell. She began her tenure at Goshen on November 1, 2017.

"Goshen College brings to the liberal arts a particular quality and commitment, being rooted and established in love," Stoltzfus says. "This taproot of love shapes and defines our excellence as we seek truth, beauty and goodness. At our best, our establishment in love manifests itself in the ways that we honor the intrinsic and inalienable worth and identity of every student and every member of our campus community; hold honest dialogue in our classrooms, offices and public spaces; and our civic engagement in local and global communities."

"Distinctively Goshen" is the inaugural theme, which aims to reflect the ways the college provides unique opportunities for the community.  Nearly 900 students from 32 states and 25 countries are enrolled at Goshen.
