New, Bold Direction for UK College?


(system) #1

Newbold College is currently in the process of restructuring in order to make its operation simpler, more efficient and cost-effective. At the request of the College Board and under the direction of Interim Principal, Dr Svein Myklebust, the Senior Management team in consultation with the staff have undertaken a detailed inspection of the College's operation.

Courses in Theology, Ministry, and English will remain due to their strong enrollment numbers.

The general restructuring together with the closure of the degree course in Media Arts and some under-subscribed shorter certificate courses means that a number of positions have been made redundant, others reconfigured within a reshaping of some departments. . . .

Dr Myklebust is expected to stay at Newbold until the appointment of the new principal. This is likely to be during the summer of 2011. Chairman of the Board, Dr Bertil Wiklander says: "We have full confidence in the restructuring process. The Trans-European Division is fully committed to supporting Newbold College, not just for pastoral education but as an Adventist academic community where everyone can grow in their Adventist Christian faith and build their skills for bearing a thoughtful Christian witness."
