In our just concluded three-day board meeting, there has been an extensive and prayerful review of concerns as well as affirmations from various sources, including students, parents, faculty, alumni, and other constituents. In recognition of our humanity and a great need for the guidance of the Holy Spirit, the board sought wisdom through multiple periods of prayer and study of the inspired counsels. During the expression of many different opinions and candid discussions, the board is grateful for the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
Some issues were already being addressed, and changes were already in process by the administration as presented to the board. We also were led to make additional positive changes. We are excited about the trajectory of Weimar University for the future.
We want to affirm our confidence in Dr. Neil Nedley, President; Dale Northrop, CFO; and Steve Brownell, the new interim COO. We also affirm our confidence in Dr. Jesson Martin, our new VPAA, with the shared governance and communication structures he is implementing in the University.
The board spent time with the leadership of Weimar Academy, reviewing their needs. We are looking forward to the recently formed Academy Governance Committee providing guidance and policies on an ongoing basis.
The board expresses their appreciation for the fine, dedicated students attending Weimar University and their families’ sacrifices. We also believe that Weimar is served by excellent and committed faculty and staff, to whom we express our confidence and gratitude.
Finally, we continue to be enthusiastic and supportive of the mission of Weimar University.
