The Association of Reformed Institutions in Higher Education selected sociology chairman Brad Breems as one of its three lecturers for the 2003-04 academic year.

The purpose of the lectureship is to support faculty development efforts at the schools in the association. Lecturers will present theological and philosophical foundations of Christian higher education in the Reformed tradition, provide models of Christian scholarship that reflect the mission and character of the ARIHE institutions, and nurture a culture of education and community that transcends the college campuses.

"Dr. Breems' passion for education within the Reformed perspective makes him a likely choice to represent the College," said Provost Liz Rudenga. "His colleagues and students can see his enthusiasm for teaching, and now he will be able to share that zeal on a broader spectrum and strengthen other faculty in ARIHE."

ARIHE comprises eight colleges and universities in the United States and Canada who share the Reformed and Presbyterian Christian tradition. The presidents or chief academic officers of each institution submitted one nomination for lecturers.

Dr. Breems, a 15-year professor at the College, also serves as Trinity's representative for the International Association for the Promotion of Christian Higher Education (IAPCHE).
