Wheaton College Announces New Schools, New Initiatives

August 14, 2018

Wheaton College announces the formation of three schools within the College: a School of Biblical and Theological Studies, a School of Mission, Ministry, and Leadership and a School of Psychology, Counseling, and Family Therapy.

“The formation of these three schools highlights the existing collaboration between undergraduate and graduate faculty and programs in each area, offering a seamless integration for the benefit of students at all levels,” says Wheaton College Provost Dr. Margaret Diddams. “It strengthens our existing programs, while also creating more nimbleness to take on new initiatives.”

Diddams has appointed Dr. David Capes as dean of the School of Biblical and Theological Studies, Dr. Ed Stetzer as dean of the School of Mission, Ministry, and Leadership and Dr. Terri Watson as dean of the School of Psychology, Counseling, and Family Therapy.
