Dr. Timothy Sedgwick Appointed New Academic Dean

My good colleague in ethics, and next-door neighbor, Professor Tim Sedgwick has accepted Dean Markham's appointment to be the next Dean of Academic Affairs at Virginia Seminary. Our congratulations and best wishes go to Tim as he takes up this new post here at VTS.

What fabulous news! After so many changes, departures and challenges it really is good to see someone as wonderful as Tim stepping in to such a key role. Hooray for the Holy Hill

De. Sedgwick will be great for this position, but what does this mean for ethics at VTS? Will he still be teaching that or will they be hiring a new ethics professor?

I agree with Anne Marie and also 'anonymous' that Tim will be only worry is that this position seems to be 'cursed' as so many recent folks to have it, then leave... (a la the Harry Potter "defense against the dark arts" position...)

In all seriousness, Tim will be great for this position, I am VERY happy about it!

So many? Dean Stafford was there for years. Michael Battle is the only person I think of with a short tenure in that position.
