HARRISONBURG, VA. - Loren Swartzendruber will serve another four-year term as president of Eastern Mennonite University (EMU). Andrew Dula , chair of the EMU board of trustees, announced at the opening convocation of second semester that Swartzendruber had "gratefully accepted" an appointment to serve a third term that begins on July 1 and ends on June 30, 2015. Major accomplishments during Swartzendruber's second term include: a successful re-accreditation for another 10 years by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and the Association of Theological Schools, and leading the institution through a difficult economic environment while balancing the budget. "The EMU board of trustees looks forward to our continuing work with president Swartzendruber," Dula said. Swartzendruber became EMUs eighth president on Jan. 1, 2004. He came to EMU from Hesston College, Kan., a two-year Mennonite school where he served as president beginning in 1994. Before that, he was associate executive secretary of the former Mennonite Board of Education in Elkhart, Ind., for 10 years.
