Programs, has been appointed as the Multnomah Biblical Seminary Dean of
Students. She will continue serving in the Student Services Department in her
current role in a half-time capacity as she takes on her new role as well.
shift is part of the general move to structure the Student Services Department
to serve all three academic divisions: seminary, graduate school, and
undergraduate Bible college. Dr. Roger Trautmann, former Seminary Dean of
Students, will also shift responsibilities by taking on the undergraduate
student ministries tasks in addition to the current seminary internship
"I am honored and delighted to transition to my new position," Dr.
Karen Fancher said. "I look forward to helping provide spiritual, academic, and
relational support to students during their seminary experience, as well as
assisting students to access the broader Student Services support structures,
such as our University Counseling Center and Academic Support Services. I trust
that students will benefit as we enhance support to our seminary students and
increase connections to services across the university. I personally look
forward to sharing with seminary students in their journeys as they are further
equipped for the unique arenas of witness and ministry that the Lord has
prepared for them."
