Grace College has made two appointments to its senior leadership team. The college has named Dr. Kevin Roberts provost, and Dr. Nathan Harris has been named vice president of advancement. Harris will take over the position formerly held by Grace College President Dr. Drew Flamm before his appointment to the college’s presidency earlier this year.
“Kevin and Nathan are strategic administrators with brilliant minds, but they are also servant leaders with tender hearts for the Lord and the work He’s doing at Grace College,” said Flamm. “Their past experiences will bring fresh perspectives and new ideas to the way we pursue academics and engage our community while holding fast to the foundations of who we are and what we believe.”
Roberts has taught at Grace’s School of Behavioral Sciences for nearly 20 years and most recently served as dean of the college. Prior to his work at Grace, the college says he worked in counseling and testing in clinical practice settings for 10 years.
In his new role as provost, Roberts will oversee each academic school, as well as student success, academic accreditation and the Morgan Library.
“Community engagement is a hallmark of Grace College, and I think we can continue to take that to the next level,” said Roberts. “I look forward to collaborating with various department chairs and deans to think outside of the box and look for innovative ways to give our students a one-of-a-kind educational experience where programmatic rigor is matched with an unwavering commitment to the truth of God’s Word.”
Harris will join the college for the first time in the fall when he takes over as vice president of advancement.
Harris previously worked for Midwestern Baptist, first as director of marketing and later as director of institutional relations initiatives. The college says Harris most recently served as senior director of annual giving and stewardship & assistant professor of biblical studies at Cedarville University.
In his new role at Grace, Harris will lead all development, annual giving and stewardship initiatives.
