Dr. James E. Brenneman will serve a third term as Goshen College’s president, according to the college’s website.

Goshen College announced Tuesday, June 10, that Brenneman will continue to serve as the school’s president. His next four-year term will begin July 1 and continue through June 30, 2018.

“We believe that Goshen College offers the world an important Christ-centered, interdisciplinary, intercultural and international education from an Anabaptist perspective,” said Rick Stiffney, outgoing chair of the Goshen College Board of Directors, in a press release. “He is the right leader for the college at this time to carry the vision forward.”

Brenneman became Goshen College’s 16th president in 2006. He plans to introduce some new changes in his upcoming term.

“I am pleased to announce that I am creating a provost/executive vice president position on my leadership team to help run the day-to-day operations of the college while I primarily focus on external relations,” Brenneman said.

Lee Snyder was appointed as to the position for the 2014-15 academic year at Goshen College.

Brenneman is a 1977 Goshen College graduate.
