Benjamin Schoun, New Board Chair
Benjamin Schoun, the new chair of the Andrews University Board of Trustees, made his first formal visit to campus on Wednesday, Sept. 8, 2010. He met with campus administrators and shared an informal lunch with President’s Cabinet and the Academic Deans Council. He will return to campus to chair his first board meeting Oct. 24. Schoun replaces Gerald Karst who served as chair for 15 years until his retirement. As a General Conference institution, a GC General vice president is appointed as Andrews University board chair. Schoun was serving as president of Adventist World Radio until his appointment as a general vice president at the world business session in June. No stranger to Andrews, he has also served as professor and associate dean of the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary.
