Candidate of choice announcement coming

We are very pleased to extend an invitation to join us for a significant announcement to our campus community with the naming of the presidential candidate of choice this Wednesday, May 24 at 1:30 p.m. in the Church-Chapel. If you are unable to be present with us in person, you can view the announcement live on Goshen College’s Facebook page or at

While we had believed we wouldn’t be able to do this for a few more weeks, we are very thankful that it is now possible to make this announcement before most of you leave campus for the summer.

The candidate of choice will not be present for the announcement but will be making a campus visit June 14-15 to meet as many of you as they are able to. Further details on the schedule for the upcoming campus visit will be forthcoming. The Presidential Search Committee will gather feedback during the visit and then make a final recommendation to the Goshen College and Mennonite Education Agency (MEA) boards.

Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers throughout the search process, and we look forward to seeing many of you on Wednesday to share this exciting news!

On behalf of the committee,

Faith Penner (Chair, Goshen College Presidential Search Committee)
Carlos Romero (Executive Director, Mennonite Education Agency)
