Dordt College plans to announce new president

April 19, 2012

The Dordt College Board of Trustees plans to announce the new president of Dordt College on Friday, April 20, at 1 p.m. in the Campus Center.

Dordt College Board of Trustees president Lloyd Vander Kwaak will introduce the new president, who then will have an opportunity to talk to the campus community.

The Board of Trustees will meet earlier that morning to consider and approve the recommendation of the Presidential Search Committee, which began its nationwide search for candidates last year after current President Dr. Carl E. Zylstra announced that this would be his final year as president. Zylstra has served as president since 1996.

Members of the media are invited to attend, and there will be a short time for media interviews following the event.

Off-campus community members, constituents, and alumni who wish to learn more about the new president will be able to read more online at and on Dordt’s YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter profiles that same afternoon.
