Bob Sweetman has agreed to accept the office of Academic Dean. Dr. Sweetman brings a wealth of experience and wisdom to this role, and not only because he served two terms as Dean during the last decade. I am particularly grateful to him for stepping up to this task yet again. His dedication to the ICS community and its vision and mission is an example and encouragement to us all. I know his leadership and counsel will be of inestimable value, as always. We pray the Lord will continue to uphold him.
