Today, during his Board of Trustees briefing, President Niels-Erik Andreasen announced that Dr. Andrea Luxton will become the second woman to hold the Provost position at Andrews University, Berrien Springs, Michigan.
She replaces Bill Richardson who has served in that position after the university's first provost, Dr. Heather Knight, moved to Northern California in 2009 to become the President of Pacific Union College.
Dr. Andreasen has been President of Andrews University since 1994.
For the last few years Andrea Luxton has been the President of Canadian University College. Previously, she served as Associate Director of Education at the Adventist headquarters in Maryland and President of Newbold College in the United Kingdom.
In 2004, Andrea Luxton received the Woman of the Year award from the Association of Adventist Women. This was due to her career in Adventist education and well as her work introducing Women's Ministries to the churches and conferences of the British Union.
Dr. Luxton was born in the United Kingdom, and received her education at Newbold College, Andrews University, and Catholic University of America.
