Administrator to speak at international forum

Dr. Kim Case, associate dean for student development and student programs at Northwestern College, will serve as a presenter for a session at the International Forum on Christian Higher Education, scheduled for Feb. 23–26 in Atlanta.

The Forum, held every four years, is sponsored by the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities (CCCU). Joining Case in the workshop for chief student development officers are Dr. Laurie Schreiner of Azusa Pacific University and Dr. Sheri Phillips of Evangel University. Their session, entitled “Gendered Realities: A CCCU Education Through Students’ Eyes,” will present research exploring gender differences in co-curricular involvement, spiritual formation and a sense of calling, and student success and retention.

Case recently earned a doctorate in higher education from Azusa Pacific University for her work investigating the variables that predict men’s and women’s co-curricular involvement while in college. She joined Northwestern’s staff in 1995 after serving as a residence hall director and director of wellness programming at Taylor University in Upland, Ind.
