#CORBANMADENEW

As we prepare for a new school year, we encourage you to begin reflecting on this year’s theme: “Made New.” Our verse for this theme is 2 Corinthians 5:17: “Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold the new has come.”

Together as a community, we will explore the concept of redemption and newness through Christ and what that means in our daily Christian life.

Dr. Matt Lucas explained the theme this way: “We long for redemption; we desire to shed off our burdens and old skin and become new. Our culture’s offer of newness is an ever-receding and fleeting ideal of beauty and youth. Unfortunately, when we come to faith in Christ, we are susceptible to trading one pursuit of newness for another: the siren song of legalism tempts us to be made new by trusting in a list of rules or our own attempts at perfection. But true newness is an act of redeeming creation. God makes us new through his Son as we grow in his likeness.”


IMPORTANT DATES

The new school year is almost here! Some important dates to remember:

Aug. 1-21– Various Student Leader Training
Fri., Aug. 14 – Early Registration (by invitation only)

Tue., Aug. 25 – Returning Student Registration

NEW EMPLOYEES


Corban is pleased to welcome the following faculty and staff members to the University community:
Les
It is my pleasure to introduce Leslie Herrmann to the Corban community.  Leslie joins Corban on July 7th as the Dean of Christian Formation and Engagement, a position that has been created in order to provide leadership and create synergy between three important  Corban programs: Chapel, Reach, and Student Programs.  Leslie will supervise Chapel directly, and will provide supervisory support to Brittany Croft as Reach Coordinator and to Ben Pearson as Director of Student Programs.  Leslie came to know the Lord as a college student through Campus Crusade for Christ and has been dedicated to Christian higher education and discipleship ever since.  Most recently, Leslie has been teaching spiritual formation at William Jessup University as an adjunct; her other professional experiences include a combination of academic and administrative roles at other Christian higher educational institutions, so she brings necessary academic and administrative skills to this new role.  Leslie obtained her undergraduate degree from Cal. State Poly; she also earned a Masters in Theological Studies and a Th.M. from Regent College in Vancouver Canada.  Leslie is a creative thinker, a collaborative leader, and is someone I am very excited for you to get to know! – Brenda Roth, Vice President for Student Life

“Please also join me in welcoming Brittany Croft as she transitions from the part-time role of Operations Manager to the full-time role of Reach Coordinator/Operations Manager.  As Operations Manager, Brittany has spent the last number of months redesigning Student Life systems.  From parking permits to student records, and from student workers to website editing, Brittany has refreshed many Student Life processes in order to make sure that they align with departmental changes that have occurred all over Corban’s campuses and more effectively enable Student Life programs to meet student and community needs… At the same time, as Reach Coordinator, Brittany will advise students, liaise with church and community partners, maintain Reach records, and provide leadership to the Reach advisory committee. Brittany has proved herself as an invaluable member of the Corban community and I am grateful to now have her serving with us in a full-time capacity.” – Brenda Roth, Vice President for Student Life

“I am excited to announce that Christina Cooper, ABD, has accepted the position of Assistant Professor of Biology in the Corban University School of Arts and Sciences… Christina will play an integral part as we continue to fulfill our mission in Salem and around the world.” – Matt Lucas, Provost/Executive Vice President

MASTERS IN COUNSELING PROGRAM NEEDS VOLUNTEER CLIENTS!

If you would be willing to volunteer to come talk about yourself and your life on tape for 45-50 minutes, you can help the counseling students continue to develop their counseling skills. You can come once or schedule several appointments. Talk about anything from indecision about your major, roommate issues, school stress, or anything else you would like to address.
Please remember that these are beginning counseling students. If you think you may have a more serious clinical problem then you should contact the counseling center on campus instead of volunteering with us.
This is a valuable learning experience for the students. We use these taped sessions to give clinical feedback to the counseling students and the tapes are deleted as soon as the student counselor presents the tape in supervision. This process makes them better counselors and prepares them to go out into agencies in the fall.
If you are interested please respond by emailing Mary Aguilera. In your response please give me the times you are available Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday between 9 a.m. and 8 p.m. (Tues. 9 a.m.-4 p.m.), and if you would prefer to talk to a male or a female student counselor. My teaching assistant, Andrea Blake, will contact you with an appointment time. The counseling room is AC5524 on the 5th floor. Thanks for considering this opportunity.
