The Institute for Christian Studies in Toronto, Ontario, announced last week that Doug Blomberg, senior member in philosophy of education, will be the school’s new president. He has been interim president since January 2014, succeeding copresidents Tom and Dawn Wolthuis.
Blomberg has taught at ICS since 1997 and is currently the academic dean.
In a press release, ICS board copresident Aileen Van Ginkel said that Blomberg is an experienced administrator and respected academic with a long history of commitment to the Institute for Christian Studies.
“I am honoured and humbled to accept the presidency of ICS,” Blomberg said in the release. “My commitment to the reformational vision and mission of ICS naturally precedes the year I spent here as a student in the mid-seventies. We remain committed to this vision, and with the support and prayers of the community, I am confident the mission can continue to be fulfilled.”
