Calvin College has appointed 2001 graduate Sarah Visser as vice president for student life. Visser holds a master’s of education degree in college student affairs from Azusa Pacific University (APU) in Azusa, Calif., and is currently chair and assistant professor in the department of leadership and organizational psychology at APU.
As she begins her tenure, Visser plans to facilitate both student life and student academics because she believes both contribute to student growth. “There’s such a strong mission and legacy at Calvin, and I see my role as stewarding that well and continuing the idea of engaging not just the life of the mind, but the whole life of the person,” Visser said in a press release.
“In Sarah we have found a leader who embodies the academic and Christian mission of Calvin College,” said Calvin College president Michael LeRoy. “She is focused wholeheartedly on serving students well and committed to making Calvin a great place to learn and grow.”
